The Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), now Eversource Energy, signed and filed with the New Hampshire Public Utilities Commission a formal Settlement Agreement with various other parties, agreeing to sell all of its remaining electric generation facilities. Divesting all of its electric generation assets helped accomplish the long-term goal of fully deregulating the electricity industry within New Hampshire. REMI was utilized in this study to model the economic and demographic effects of potential divestiture scenarios, which included a settlement scenario that allowed for the securitization of all stranded costs. All the scenarios modeled had aggregate impacts that created jobs, output, and gross state product (GSP), while the economic activity generated from the relative cost savings also increased state tax revenue savings.
