CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — A group entrusted with developing a state energy strategy for New Hampshire has focused on four areas: modernizing the electric grid, increasing efficiency, diversifying the fuel supply, and increasing transportation choices.

The group is made up of the Office of Energy Planning, in consultation with a state Energy Advisory Council created last year and with input from the public and legislators. The report was released Tuesday.

Many of the recommendations are in transportation, including the expansion of charging areas for electric vehicles, with the possibility of offering tax credits for businesses that install public charging stations; and the expansion of mass transit options including local, inter-city, and regional bus lines and rail lines.

Gov. Maggie Hassan said the strategy will help guide the Legislature, government, businesses, nonprofits and citizens.
