May Green Drinks Newport
May 2 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Join us for our May event at Caleb & Broad, co-hosted by Green Energy Consumers Alliance and Aquidneck Island Planning Commission. Enjoy a drink and light snacks as we celebrate their partnership to bring community choice electricity aggregation, specifically the Green Municipal Aggregation program, to Newport, Middletown, and Portsmouth!
Green Municipal Aggregation is a model that allows for important energy decisions to be made at the local level. How? Green Municipal Aggregation allows municipalities to go out to bid for an electricity supplier and secure a long-term price and a cleaner electricity supply for its residential and small businesses. By helping communities manage their energy costs by facilitating the aggregation of their residents’ electricity supply while driving the demand for more renewable energy above and beyond what state law requires, thus serving as a strong climate action tool.
