PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Gov. Gina Raimondo has nominated three new members to a board that oversees renewable energy usage in the state.
Raimondo announced Wednesday the nomination of Sue Anderbois, Kari Lange and Ian Springsteel to the Distributed Generation Standard Contracts Board. The governor will submit their names to the Senate for confirmation.
Officials say the board aims to reduce carbon emissions that contribute to climate change by encouraging local renewable energy projects.
The board oversees the Distributed Generation Standard Contracts Program, which encourages distributed generation of electricity through renewable sources.
Raimondo's nominations will be replacing Christine Malecki West, Charity Pennock and Thomas Teehan.
