POWERING RHODE ISLAND’S FUTURE
Since 2009 Green Development (formerly “Wind Energy Development, LLC”) has developed renewable energy solutions across our state. We work with Rhode Island communities, public entities, landowners, and farmers to plan and construct wind turbines and solar power systems that deliver reliable and inexpensive power.
WE DIRECTLY IMPACT
Increasing Energy Security
Rhode Island currently imports the majority of its energy resources. Nearly 98% of those resources come from natural gas produced out of state. Further, the cost of these antiquated resources increases in times of short supply. Green Development has committed itself to helping Rhode Island produce its own power from renewable sources to establish a reliable and environment-friendly energy supply.
Lowering Carbon Emissions
The renewable energy solutions installed by Green Development have a significant impact on the surrounding environment. Each operating wind turbine provides enough greenhouse gas emission reductions to equal the effect of removing 500 cars from the road every year. Our first completed wind turbine was both the first privately owned and first distributed generation (DG) turbine in the Ocean State. It enables National Grid to distribute power to residents of North Kingstown at a fixed rate for 15 years.
Preserving Farmland in RI
By constructing renewable energy projects on local farmers’ and large landowners’ property, they receive lease revenue which helps ensure they will be able to operate on their land for many years to come. We lease a portion of the property to install the renewable energy energy project, providing income and financial flexibility for our farmers and their families.
Boosting Local Economies
Green Development’s renewable energy solutions deliver power to towns and cities through a net metering program at a fixed, low rate. This helps save millions of dollars over the course of the contract. Our wind and solar projects also create local jobs including the manufacturing of components, service, and maintenance.
