Administrative Rules

The Department of Energy’s and the Public Utilities Commission’s rules govern utilities, energy providers, and other entities subject to the Department’s or the Commission’s authority.

Pursuant to RSA 12-P:11 and RSA 12-P:14, the Department of Energy administers and enforces the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) rules that are associated with functions, powers, and duties transferred to the Department from the Commission until the Commission’s rules expire or are repealed or amended, or for a period of 5 years, whichever occurs first.

The Department is in the process of promulgating its own rules.  The following rules have been promulgated by the New Hampshire Department of Energy.
