March 2004 - SmartPower, a Connecticut-based, non-profit organization that promotes the use of renewable energy, has formed a new partnership with the Rhode Island Renewable Energy Fund (RIREF) to publicize the availability of green power in the Ocean State. Beginning in April, Rhode Island residents will have the opportunity to purchase green power from four providers: Conservation Services Group, Community Energy, People's Power & Light and Sterling Planet. Each provider will market its products individually while SmartPower will conduct a direct marketing campaign to educate state consumers.
The RIREF is administered by the Rhode Island State Energy Office and is financed with funds collected from Rhode Island electric ratepayers. The Fund works to bring more affordable renewable electricity to the state and supports consumer education efforts.
