Chelsea Electricity Choice is being designed to increase the amount of renewable energy in the City’s electricity supply.
By replacing the burning of fossil fuels with the use of renewable energy resources such as solar and wind energy, Chelsea is working to:
- Reduce greenhouse gases. Electricity generated from renewable sources, such as the sun and wind, does not create the greenhouse gases that cause climate change and does not pollute the air.
- Support New England-based renewable energy projects. Chelsea will prioritize buying renewable energy from New England-based renewable energy projects. By creating additional demand for the electricity generated by those projects, Chelsea Electricity Choice will help to support existing projects and stimulate the development of additional projects.
- Support local businesses and local jobs. Purchasing renewable energy from New England-based projects means supporting New England-based businesses and the jobs they provide to local communities.
