Fighting for Energy Independence and Increasing Affordable Renewable Energy
In an effort to build a cleaner energy future and ensure Rhode Islanders have access to affordable, reliable energy, Senator Reed has delivered billions of dollars to help low-income families keep the heat on in the winter and invest in weatherization, energy efficiency, and energy conservation.
Senator Reed has supported efforts to safely and responsibly reduce America’s dependence on oil, coal, and other fossil fuels. He helped jumpstart Rhode Island’s offshore wind industry, and staunchly defended Rhode Island’s coastline from offshore oil drilling.
Senator Reed also recognizes the importance of innovation in the shift away from fossil fuels. Reed has long been a proponent of clean energy incentives and strong investments in renewable energy technologies – including battery storage – to meet this challenge.
