South Central Connecticut’s tap water will soon be “greener” than ever before. To provide high-quality water to its 430,000 customers in South Central Connecticut, the Regional Water Authority (RWA) preserves and protects more than 27,000 acres of watershed land. Today, the company announced that it has signed a contract that will allow it to be completely powered by green, renewable energy starting December 2019, without increasing energy costs over what the RWA pays today.
“The health of our environment is critical to the quality of our water and the health of our customers,” said Larry Bingaman, president and CEO of the RWA. “As the RWA celebrates its 170th year serving the people of South Central Connecticut, we have recommitted ourselves to environmental stewardship. Beginning December 2019, and for the four years following, the RWA will run on green, renewable energy. We are proud to announce this next critical step in our transformation from a traditional water utility into a 21st-century environmental services company.”
