The Region’s Most Advanced Technology

One of the cleanest natural gas plants in the country

Invenergy Reducing Potential Oil Usage at Burrillville facility

We recently cut the number of potential oil-fired days at the Clear River Energy Center by half. This change has the potential to reduce carbon emissions from the facility by up to 30,000 tons annually.

“The Facility will contribute to reducing CO2 emissions associated with electricity used in Rhode Island, which is derived from generating resources across New England, as well as imports from neighboring regions.”

Displacing Older Power Plants

New England currently relies on older, less efficient power plants to keep up with the region’s energy demand. By adding more than 900 megawatts of clean energy to the local grid, Clear River Energy Center will displace those outdated suppliers and reduce New England’s carbon emissions by hundreds of thousands of tons each year. That's equal to taking 124,000 cars off the road each year.

The Clear River Energy Center will use state-of-the-art emissions control technologies, making the facility among the cleanest natural gas plants in the country.

Reducing Emissions

The rise of cleaner, more efficient natural gas has led to reductions in CO2 emissions across the region, most significantly in the electric sector.

Lowering annual emissions each year:

  • Carbon dioxide CO2: by 1,019,000 tons
  • Nitrogen oxides NOX: by 2,240 tons
  • Sulphur oxides SOX: by 2,762 tons.

* AVERAGE ANNUAL REDUCTION BETWEEN 2019 AND 2025
