Renewable Energy Sources, Energy Efficiency, and a Sustainable Future in the Ocean State
The first phase announcement at Buttonwoods Brewery!!
A capacity crowd packed the Buttonwoods Brewery on November 6th to join the Progressive Democrats of Rhode Island & Ocean State Community Energy as they presented a first-of-its-kind blueprint for a renewable energy utility in Cranston, Rhode Island.
Following a short slide deck presentation, there was a ninety minute question & answer and discussion around what a Cranston utility would look like and how it would power Cranston’s businesses, homes, industries, and transportation with solar, tidal, and onshore/offshore wind while producing a vibrant new energy economy.
The report summary is available below and the revised full report will be available the first week of January 2020. There you will learn how the blueprint can be scaled to all Rhode Island municipalities, and how the Ocean State can become a producer and exporter of clean energy while preserving its natural habitats and combating climate change.
