2020 Clean Energy Champion

Clifton Below holding award

The City would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Assistant Mayor Clifton Below on his designation as 2020 Clean Energy Champion of the Year by Clean Energy NH. 

Clean Energy NH, the Granite State’s leading clean energy advocate and educator, announced the winners of its annual Clean Energy Awards on December 22, 2020. This award is presented annually to a Clean Energy NH member that has gone above-and-beyond in their support and engagement with the organization and demonstrates a leadership role in the transition to a clean energy future.  

As stated in the Clean Energy NH Press Release

Few individuals have done more for the progress of our state's, nay, our nation's energy evolution than this year’s winner. Clifton Below, in the mid-1990s as a legislator in New Hampshire's House of Representatives, penned the nation's first Electric Utility Restructuring Statute and catalyzed a wave of copycat laws across America. Since this auspicious start to an illustrious career, Clifton has continued to lead New Hampshire forward on energy issues -- first as a State Senator, then as a Public Utilities Commissioner, and now as Assistant Mayor for the City of Lebanon -- always with an unshakable commitment to the ideals of market competition, energy independence, and environmental sustainability. A smattering of Clifton's accomplishments over the years includes his co-founding of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, collaborating with Liberty Utilities to design a nationally recognized time-of-use residential energy storage pilot, and most recently authoring and shepherding the Community Power Law through the New Hampshire General Court.

The City of Lebanon is extremely fortunate to have Councilor Below as part of our community, utilizing his understanding and passion to better our energy future and improve our quality of life. Thanks again and CONGRATULATIONS on receipt of this award!
