National Grid regularly upgrades its electric and natural gas systems so that it may continue to provide Rhode Islanders with safe, reliable service for their homes and businesses. As part of that commitment, National Grid is planning to upgrade its natural gas distribution network in Southern Rhode Island beginning in the spring of 2019.
GrowthPoint is important for Rhode Island because it provides improved access to natural gas service to homes and businesses, and will feature the upgrade of a distribution main line from West Warwick south into East Greenwich. As each phase of the project is completed, we will have the ability to increase capacity to meet existing (and future) demand for the product, improve system reliability, and serve as an important catalyst for economic development in the region.
Natural gas is a desired fuel source for residential, commercial and industrial users; the GrowthPoint project will play an important role in providing natural gas service to Quonset Business Park and other economic development centers in a part of the state that is playing an increasingly important role in the state’s economy.
