PSNH says it remains committed to economic development

December 26, 2012
LACONIA — The merger of Conn.-based Northeast Utilities, including Public Service of New Hampshire (PSNH), and Boston-based NSTAR has not diminished PSNH's interest in economic and community development, Pat McDermott, PSNH's longtime manager explained to the 300-plus people gathered on Dec. 13 at the 17th annual meeting of the state Division of Economic Development. Although rumors have abounded that PSNH would no longer play a key role in the state's efforts to attract new companies and industries that is not the case, he said.

"Our focus will be to work with the New Hampshire communities in which we do business and to be the point of contact for all municipal questions and concerns," he explained. "In addition, we will work with first responders in these communities, both to help them be better prepared for natural disasters and to be the municipal liaisons during storm restoration efforts." McDermott said he is managing northern New Hampshire as well as the Greater Manchester area. Former state Parks Director Allison McLean will manage the state's central section.
