Public Service Company of New Hampshire History
Serving more than 400,000 New Hampshire residents and businesses, PSNH is the largest utility in New Hampshire. Founded in 1926, it has since grown to own 3 fossil-fuel plants and 9 hydroelectric plants in the state. They employ more than 1,500 employees and serves nearly ¾ of the state of New Hampshire. In 2015, PSNH was acquired and rebranded as Eversource Energy along with Connecticut Power & Lights and NStar.

- Eversource Energy serves most of the northern region of New Hampshire with service in nearly all towns except Odell, Dixville and Second College.

- Eversource competes with Liberty Utilities for parts of southern and western NH.
Eversource Energy (PSNH) Rates
After PSNH was forced to restructure in 2002 in order to accommodate energy deregulation, it has since had to compete with retail energy providers moving into the state. Since energy deregulation is still relatively new in New Hampshire, many residents and businesses still are not aware they can shop electricity rates from different providers.
Not only can you potentially find a better rate, but many providers also offer incentives to sign up like gift cards, discounts, and point-based bonus programs. It’s important to note that if you do switch to an independent retail energy provider, your energy generation, energy bill and maintenance of electrical wires and poles will still come from Eversource Energy. There will be no change in energy reliability or service interruptions. The only change will be the new supply rate from your chosen provider.
