Before one can truly appreciate how governmental decisions are made, one must first understand the committee system and the vital role that committees play. The ‘committee’ should be at the center of all local government decisions.
Committees offer the opportunity for group problem solving and should be a forum for presenting multiple points of view. Committees are also the training ground for future leadership and an arena where emerging leaders can test and refine their skills and abilities.
Effective committees must be carefully planned and constructed to have a balanced representation of members, a clearly defined mission or objective, a well-defined work plan and dedicated members working toward accomplishing their mission.
The Henniker Energy Committee was re-established in September 2017. I am extremely proud to have been elected by my fellow committee members to Chairman this committee.
Our immediate task was to evaluate a solar energy proposal that was received by the Board of Selectmen in July 2017. The committee began meeting in September and forged ahead by research and discussing the current concepts in solar energy.
On January 26, 2018 the Energy Committee finalized our report; SOLAR ENERGY A REPORT FINAL , which was emailed to the Board of Selectmen.
The committee members hope our efforts will help them make informed decisions during the developing of our town’s solar energy policy.
I would like to personally thank committee members; Selectmen Peter Flynn, Bill Marko, Mike French, Mark Mitch and Dan Goodenough for their work on this report.

Chairman Henniker Energy Committee
