By next summer two major renewable energy projects will come on-line, while continuing investment in large and small projects will change the way the state consumes power. Last month construction began on what will be the largest solar energy system in the state, when the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 99 started installing 240 solar panels at its headquarters in Cranston.
