Should PUC raise rates to improve energy efficiency? And what’s the hiring climate right now?
Down to Business Podcast Episode 40
NH Business Review editor Jeff Feingold talks to writer Bob Sanders about the current debate over whether the PUC should raise rates, especially commercial rates, for energy efficiency improvements. The PUC says businesses will see the greatest long term advantages, but they will also be paying more in the increase. Then Jeff talks to Associate Editor Liisa Rajala about the current hiring climate. There’s a labor shortage out there, at least in some sectors, and that means wages and sign on bonuses are increasing.
