Liberty Utilities Restructure
Liberty Utilities was forced to restructure after the New Hampshire Legislature enacted RSA 374-F, a statute which directed the Public Utilities Commission to develop a statewide restructuring plan in 1996. Liberty Utilities was the first to restructure in 1998 with the other 3 utilities (Eversource, Unitil Energy Systems Inc., and NHEC) in New Hampshire following soon after. By 2002, all the utilities in NH had restructured allowing for independent electricity retailers to enter 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.
