A progressive state, focused on the greater good.


Whether you particularly enjoy our beaches, hiking trails, nature preserves, or urban areas, Rhode Islanders care about preserving our natural environment, and we have demonstrated that through state policies. Over the last few years, Rhode Island has made a concerted effort to develop more renewable energy sources, and to make those sources more affordable to individuals and businesses. This promotes more cost effective energy production, with a substantially reduced impact on the environment that we all care about.
