EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – On Thursday, September 28th at 1:00 p.m., Lt. Governor Dan McKee will partner with East Providence City Manager Timothy Chapman to host an Empower RI information session at Weaver Library to help ratepayers safely shop for alternate electricity suppliers and save on their electric bills.
During the information sessions, members of McKee's staff will be available to answer questions about Empower RI (www.ri.gov/EmpowerRI), an energy-shopping website McKee helped launch in 2016. Staff members will also demonstrate how to switch electricity suppliers online and circumvent National Grid's rate increase set to go into effect on October 1st.
The session is free and open to the public. Residents wishing to learn more are asked to bring their most recent electric bills to the Champlin Room at Weaver Library, 41 Grove Ave., East Providence, RI 02914.
Over the next couple weeks, the lieutenant governor's office will continue to partner with municipal leaders to host Empower RI information sessions across the state.
