$1.1 million energy incentive makes equipment installation a reality
ALBANY, N.Y., January 26, 2015 /3BL Media/ – Although energy efficiency measures are often thought of as a way for residential customers to save on cost, the same principles apply to larger, commercial customers.
On a blustery cold 25-degree day when the need for heat couldn’t be any more apparent, the National Grid Foundation presented a $100,000 donation to the “Keep the Heat On” heating assistance program.
Sponsored by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence since 2005, the program helps families and individuals pay their heating bills when all other forms of public and private assistance have been exhausted. To date, the fund has helped more than 9,500 Rhode Islanders stay warm during the cold winter months through more than $2 million in donations.
Washington, D.C., December 29, 2015 /3BL Media/ – The Alliance to Save Energy (Alliance) Board of Directors has elected four individuals who will help support the Alliance’s mission of achieving a more energy-efficient future. We are confident that with their added expertise and support, the Alliance will soar to new heights in the year ahead. The newly elected Directors, who represent top business, utility and industry entities, include:
In the lead-up to COP 21, the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris, many Americans have rallied around a target year of 2050 for a decarbonized energy infrastructure in the U.S. As the leader of one of the nation’s largest electricity and natural gas utilities, you can count me in.
Done right, I believe that New York and New England, demonstrating national energy leadership, can get from our current levels of renewable and hydro power – less than 30% of the energy we use today – to a fully decarbonized energy network.
This week National Grid joined 153 other companies who have signed the American Business Act on Climate Pledge to demonstrate their support for action on climate change and the conclusion of a climate change agreement in Paris that takes a strong step forward toward a low-carbon, sustainable future.
A first of its kind—the microgrid could revolutionize our future energy networks
On this final stop in our Connect21 video series, hear all about our partnership with Clarkson University on a microgrid project in Potsdam, NY. It’s anything but small. In fact, Clarkson’s president predicts the partnership between National Grid and Clarkson University could revolutionize how the electric grid across the country is operated into the future.
