New Hampshire is currently in the process of restructuring the electric utility system and as plans advance for this restructuring, it is important to understand how the industry currently works and how it will change. Basically, our current electric system involves three stages: generation, transmission, and distribution. Electricity is first generated by using coal, oil, natural gas, nuclear power, or the force of water. This electricity is then transmitted over high-voltage wires to distribution centers. Here, the voltage is stepped down is a partial list of evening courses offered this summer at the UNH Thompson School The summer session runs in five- and ten-week modules from May 28 through August 2, Tuition is $ per credit.

In the past, most utilities owned their generation plants, transmission lines, and distribution wires and electric prices for production, transmission, and distribution were bundled together. Although some utilities like Unitil have moved to market-based purchases of production and transmission, electric services to customers and prices have remained bundled . In contrast, restructuring the electric industry will involve unbundling electric costs, thereby separating the costs of generating and Customers will delivering electricity. be allowed to choose their electricity suppliers from among the competing utilities and independent supply companies. Suppliers will have open access to the transmission system's high-voltage wires carrying electricity to distribution centers, where utilities will continue to be regulated as local distribution companies. Customers will be able to choose the prices and services they want, without losing the reliability of their service. In addition CLASSIFIED We are a wholesale greenhouse looking for an experienced grower interested in producing both florist quality potted crops for local sales and young plants for national distribution. Our growth has made it necessary to search for someone with solid knowledge in technical growing. The candidate must be able to understand lab results and make recommendations based on these. Our two acres of both poly and Dutch glass houses are stateof-the-art, along with our goal of quality production. Please send resume, with references, to: Mr. Douglas S. Cole, President D.S.

It is an unfortunate fact that NH's average electricity rates are the highest in the U.S. It appears increasingly obvious that to encourage development and economic expansion in horticulture and other industries in New Hampshire, NH's electricity rates must come down to levels competitive with the rest of the US. We should applaud our legislators for recognizing the need to restructure the electric industry in New Hampshire and, if you support this open market concept for utility deregulation, you should take action and write a letter to your local state representative.

It is said that in gray weather, the moisture in the air refracts more light...that's one explanation for the amount of color at Chakarian Farm Greenhouses in Derry on the evening of April 30.

This should come as welcome news to the Green Industry in the state after more than a decade of neglect and serious erosion of budgets, personnel, and university support in the ornamentals area. Rationale and direction for reshaping ornamentals are detailed in a February report compiled by a review team independent of the university. Input for the review came from the Department of Plant Biology, the Thompson School's Horticultural Technology program. Cooperative Extension, and a fair number of representatives from all the Green Industry in facets of New Hampshire. The report is a collection of observations, analyses, evaluations, and recommendations for each of the programs (Thompson School, Plant Biology, Extension), and for the three major areas of responsibility (teaching, research, and extension of research into the public and industrial spheres). So, what are the insights and recommendations, and what's next? A search is underway for a fulltime, permanent ornamental horticulturist in Plant Biology, with an appointment of 60% teaching and 40% applied research. Expectations are high for an energetic, innovative, whole-plant ornamentalist who will jump in with both feet and take charge in development of a strong program of teaching and industryoriented research. The position description keeps open the area of specialization within the broad realm of wholeplant ornamental horticulture: The new faculty members focus may be greenhouse, floriculture, nursery, landscape, or some combination of these areas. It should be noted that this is not an additional position, but a replacement for retired Professor Owen Rogers. Since this will be the sole ornamentalist in the department, at least in the near-term, both the industry and the review team felt that the specific area of expertise within ornamental horticulture was not critical.
