100% Renewable Energy Cranston Summary Report
This blueprint commissioned by the Rhode Island Progressive Democrats of America shows that Cranston, Rhode Island can produce 100% of its energy needs with solar, onshore vertical wind, offshore wind, and a smart and shareable micro-grid/energy storage system.
100% Renewable Energy Cranston by 2030
(Full Phase I Report)
As a model city, Cranston points to Rhode Island’s ability to create more energy than it needs. Cranston is a dense municipality with less space for solar and vertical wind, and most Rhode Island cities have more room for energy production and a greater ability to exceed their energy requirements. With this positive outcome to our first step, we’re moving forward to the next step in our project to create a blueprint for all of Rhode Island.
