Invenergy plant provides today’s power needs

While I am optimistic about the future of renewable energy, I am also realistic. It’s going to take several years before renewable options are advanced enough to possibly support our region’s energy needs.

Here’s the problem: We don’t have several years to wait. We’re facing an energy shortage right now – a shortage that must be addressed immediately.

I agree that we should be working toward a renewable future. But, in the meantime, we need to make sure the lights stay on.

Approving the proposed Burrillville power plant – which will address the energy shortage and help lower electricity costs across the state – is the first step.
