Economic Development

Eversource is committed to supporting the economic growth of our communities and our customers - supporting initiatives at the regional, state and local levels. 

The revitalized Mill Yard in downtown Manchester, NH.In addition to focused economic development projects, Eversource's work each day in the communities we serve also greatly impacts our local economies. 

This includes the hundreds of millions of dollars we invest in our energy delivery infrastructure, the employment of more than 8,500 employees across New England, micro-grants for local economic and community development initiatives, the development of cost-efficiency renewable energy projects such as Bay State Wind and the implementation of our award-winning energy efficiency programs.

“Whether working to control energy costs and supporting energy efficiency programs or partnering with the chamber to address critical issues - such as workforce development - Eversource is a leader in promoting economic development and supporting our business community.”
