New Solar Project Contract Involves All Three RI Electric Utilities

The Rhode Island Office of Energy Resources is announcing a contract for a new solar project sited near Hartford, Connecticut. The state says the project has agreed to provide power at a fixed price of five-point-three cents per kilowatt hour for twenty years and is projected to produce enough electricity to power more than 18-thousand homes annually. For the first time, National Grid, Pascoag Utility District and Block Island Utility District - the three electric utilities in Rhode Island - will share the output of a project, pending approval by the Public Utilities Commission.
