State creates blueprint to modernize Rhode Island's electric grid and control long-term costs for ratepayers
Employment in Rhode Island’s clean economy increased by 11% between 2016 and 2017. Clean energy jobs now support about 15,300 workers across the state.
In March 2017, Governor Gina M. Raimondo announced a strategic goal to increase the amount of clean energy in the state by 10 times by the end of 2020.
Solarize Rhode Island, a partnership between the Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources, Commerce RI, and SmartPower, has helped hundreds of residents and businesses sign up for solar systems.
Under Governor Gina M. Raimondo’s Executive Order 15-17, the State’s Lead by Example initiative is promoting the adoption of clean energy measures across public sector facilities and state agencies.
