PROVIDENCE, R.I.-- Lt. Governor Daniel J. McKee will be joined by Rhode Island Division of Public Utilities and Carriers Administrator Thomas Ahern on Wednesday, January 27, 2016, at 2 p.m. for the launch of Empower RI, a website to help Rhode Islanders shop for the best electricity prices.
Empower RI will allow business and residential customers to compare electricity prices and terms from competitive suppliers to the current "Standard Offer" from National Grid. The site is designed to make the process of selecting a competitive electricity supplier easier and more transparent in Rhode Island, which has some of the highest energy costs in the country.
Empower RI is a joint effort of the Office of the Lieutenant Governor, the Rhode Island Division of Public Utilities and Carriers and Rhode Island Interactive.
The press conference will feature a walk-through of the website.
