Supporting the three Providence wind turbines

Date: January 4, 2019

Green Energy Consumers is now purchasing Renewable Energy Certificates (RECs) from 3 wind turbines owned and operated by the Narragansett Bay Commission. The project is located at Field’s Point Wastewater Treatment Facility in Providence, RI overlooking the beautiful Narraganset Bay. Altogether, the 3 turbines produce about 7,000-megawatt hours of electricity per year - enough to power 1,950 homes!

Green Energy Consumers is our new name – and it better reflects our mission to speed the transition to a low-carbon future. We want more people to unite for a low-carbon future by participating in our programs. And when more people participate specifically in our green power program, like you do, more renewable energy comes online.

That’s why we’re making the green power program simpler and clearer. It’s got a new name, “Green Powered,” and New England Wind and New England GreenStart will now be called the 100% and 25% levels.
