Eversource is committed to supporting the economic growth of our communities and our customers - supporting initiatives at the regional, state and local levels.
In addition to focused economic development projects, Eversource's work each day in the communities we serve also greatly impacts our local economies.
This includes the hundreds of millions of dollars we invest in our energy delivery infrastructure, the employment of more than 8,000 employees across New England, micro-grants for local economic and community development initiatives, the development of cost-efficiency renewable energy projects such as Bay State Wind and the implementation of our award-winning energy efficiency programs.
“Successful economic development is about working to provide businesses with the resources they need to be competitive, fostering the education and growth of our workforce, and reducing the cost of doing business – all while being a good partner to communities and the environment.
I am happy to say that Eversource continues to set the bar high, with a constant focus on developing Western Massachusetts and helping other communities and businesses thrive.”
- Rick Sullivan
