In Docket DE 19-203, the New Hampshire Commission said that it, "has determined that New Hampshire electricity providers may not be able to procure sufficient renewable energy certificates (RECs) to comply with New Hampshire's Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS) requirements under RSA 362-F." "Reports of temporary or permanent closure of multiple Class III certified biomass facilities suggest that electricity providers may not be able to procure sufficient Class Ill RECs to satisfy Class III requirements for compliance year 2019. In particular, the Commission has received documentation from the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services indicating that a number of Class III certified biomass facilities have suspended operations for extended periods during 2019. The combined capacity of the affected facilities represents approximately 30% of the total capacity of certified Class III facilities, indicating that their suspended operations may have a significant impact on the availability of 2019 Class III RECs," the PUC said.

As a result, the Commission announced that it will hold a public comment hearing on Monday, January 13, 2020 to gather information regarding the 2019 annual electric generation output of certified Class III eligible sources, the corresponding availability of New Hampshire Class III RECs, and the demand for New Hampshire Class III RECs based on market conditions for compliance year 2019.
