On June 22, 2020, the Town Council directed the Town Administrator to come up with a plan. The plan is available for review at https://www.portsmouthri.com/1619/Energy-Aggregation . A public hearing was conducted on August 11, 2020 by the Portsmouth Town Council Zoom meeting. Hearing minutes are posted at www.portsmouthri.com. The plan was approved to be sent to RI Public Utilities Commission (PUC). Upon PUC approval, the Town would solicit suppler bids, conduct a public education campaign and ultimately sign an energy supply contract. The contract would take effect on the next energy bill. Due to COVID delays the PUC filing was delayed and is expected to be heard by the PUC in August 2021.
