Public Service Company of New Hampshire
The Public Service Company of New Hampshire (PSCNH) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Northeast Utilities. On its website, PSCNH states that it formed in 1926 and is the state's "largest electric utility, serving more than 490,000 homes and businesses throughout the state."

|Merrimack Station||NH||1960, 1968||459 MW|
|Schiller Station||NH||1952, 1955, 1957||150 MW|
PSCNH also operates the oil and gas fired Newington Station and together these three fossil-fuel power stations account for 95% of the utility's power output.
Public Service Company is a member of the American Coal Ash Association (ACAA), an umbrella lobbying group for all coal ash interests that includes major coal burners Duke Energy, Southern Company and American Electric Power as well as dozens of other companies. The group argues that the so-called "beneficial-use industry" would be eliminated if a "hazardous" designation was given for coal ash waste.
