Rhode Island has recently been facing threats from rising seas and more extreme storms caused by climate change. On June 14, the state’s House of Representatives approved Bill 2022-H7277A requiring that 100% of Rhode Island’s electric power come from renewable energy sources by 2033. Currently, renewables only supply 20% of the total electricity in the state.

The bill was sponsored by Rep Deborah Ruggiero and asserted, “We’ve seen a 74% increase in green jobs since 2014, and that trend is going to continue as we deepen our commitment to renewables.”
