March 2004 - Narragansett Electric, a National Grid subsidiary, now offers a green power option to its 465,000 electricity customers in Rhode Island. Under the utility's GreenUp program, customers can purchase green power from one of four participating green power marketers: Community Energy, Conservation Services Group, People's Power & Light, and Sterling Planet. The product options range in price from 0.75¢/kWh to 2.0¢/kWh and consist of renewable energy supplied from a variety of sources, such as wind, small hydro, biomass, and solar. Participating customers do not switch from their existing utility service but will see a green power surcharge on their regular utility bills. National Grid also offers the GreenUp program through distribution subsidiaries in Massachusetts and New York.
