Our future is clean energy. It's core to our commitment to lead our industry in sustainability and is a critical element of our business today and in the future.
We're dedicated to making our operations carbon neutral by 2030, and to bringing more clean and affordable energy to New England.
Building a Clean Energy Infrastructure
A clean energy future starts with a strong foundation. We're building the infrastructure our region needs to deliver clean energy to homes and businesses.
These projects will allow us to connect energy sources to our grid that are better for the environment.
- We are delivering innovative solutions to lower emissions, improve reliability and integrate clean energy resources into our system.
- We are supporting the three states we serve in their aggressive GHG emission reduction goals as we invest in projects that will enable a cleaner grid.
- We are supporting the development of offshore wind, solar and energy storage — as well as innovative solutions like networked geothermal as a potential alternative to fossil fuel heating and cooling.
- We are providing more opportunities for our customers to participate in the clean energy transition by offering them opportunities to adopt new technologies, such as electric vehicles, and helping them lower their energy use.
Our first projects to harness the power of the sun were installed more than 10 years ago, and today our 70 MW solar portfolio generates enough electricity to power more than 11,000 homes.
We are committed to educating our communities on solar power generation and helping our customers understand the potential that solar generation represents for infusing the grid with renewable energy.
We are optimistic in forging partnerships with the communities we serve to develop, own and operate solar projects paired with energy storage — a dynamic solution for supporting community climate resilience and reducing peak demand.
We also manage solar incentive programs for developing photovoltaic systems, which can lower energy costs for participating customers and support the region's climate goals. To date, Eversource customers have installed panels generating 1.9 gigawatts of solar energy.
We work proactively to support policies in our states to sustain the growth of the solar market through long-term system planning and cost-effective investments. We are launching a community solar program in Connecticut and have proposed a new community solar initiative in Massachusetts to help lower barriers to solar access for low income customers.
