This bill assigns new responsibilities to the grid modernization advisory group, specifically directing the group to provide recommendations to the Department of Energy on ways to enhance the delivery of energy efficiency programs and incentives. The goal of these recommendations is to maximize the consumer benefits from existing funding sources, including state, federal, and utility funds.

The bill amends RSA 12-P:16, II(a) by adding a new subparagraph (5), which outlines the advisory group's new task. It also specifies that the act will take effect 60 days after its passage. The fiscal note attached to the bill indicates that there is no fiscal impact on state, county, and local expenditures or revenue as a result of this bill. There are no insertions or deletions of legal language provided in the summary text.
