Ensuring a better, more sustainable future
for our communities and customers.

Within the next 12 years, we’re making it our mission to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions by 40% across the Northeast.

Renewable Energy

We’re making clean energy more accessible for all our customers. By the year 2030, more than 60% of our electricity will be generated with renewables.

Clean Transportation

We’re investing in a future of clean mobility by installing and managing more than 150 publicly available electric vehicle charging stations.

Technology Innovation

We’re helping our cities and towns become smarter, more efficient, and more resilient by putting new technologies and ways to use electricity to the test.

Building Sustainable Communities Through Solar Power

If humans found a way to tap into a resource over 93 million miles away, we can do our part to take it the extra mile.

In Buffalo’s economically diverse Fruit Belt neighborhood, we brought solar photovoltaic (PV) generation to 74 customers’ rooftops at no cost to them. Participating customers receive a bill credit on their monthly electricity bills based on the amount of solar power generated without the financial hurdle of purchasing, installing, and maintaining their own solar PV systems. An additional 58 customers, who are unable to host a solar PV system, are also receiving the same solar PV monthly electricity bill credits. We also analyzed the effect of concentrating solar generation on a neighborhood grid to help determine if this business model for renewable energy can serve as a scalable solution for other neighborhoods.

We partnered with Solar Liberty, GE Global Research, and the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) to implement this project.

Transforming the
Transportation Sector

If humans found a way to build cars without fuel tanks, we can find a way to arrive at a better outcome.

By 2030, we’re setting a goal to have 50% of all cars on Northeast roads be electric. Not only are we adding more EVs to our fleet of vehicles, but we’re also installing and managing more than 150 publicly accessible EV charging stations in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and New York.

We’re also working to increase awareness and education around the benefits of EVs, available models, and incentives. We’ve never been more committed to supporting clean, efficient transportation options for our customers.

Using Innovative Technologies to Build Smart Cities

If humans found a way to make lights that sense movement, we can find a way to illuminate a better future.

In collaboration with the City of Schenectady, we’re upgrading more than 4,000 street lights with advanced LED street lighting and controls. This new technology will not only make the city more efficient, but will help city employees monitor and control the lighting in real time.

Imagine technology that immediately alerts city employees when a street light is out, or that automatically brightens lighting when it senses movement from a runner or bicyclist. These smart lighting technologies will help Schenectady save energy, lower costs, and reduce maintenance—all while creating a cleaner and safer city for its citizens.

At National Grid, we’ll be working to see if this model for smart lighting technologies can serve as a scalable solution for other towns and cities.
