Heading into The Big E, The Eastern States Exposition taps Hampshire Power to provide 100% green energy 

The only energy supplier based in Massachusetts, Hampshire Power is pleased to announce a new partnership with The Eastern States Exposition.

“The decision by The Eastern States Exposition to transition to 100% green energy with Hampshire Power reaffirms their goal of showcasing the abundance that New England has to offer,” says Sinead Coleman, director of operations, Hampshire Power. “By investing in local renewable energy, they are keeping money in the community, and supporting local businesses.”

The partnership with The Big E broadens Hampshire Power’s renewable green energy program. Expanding local green energy enhances climate resiliency. Raising demand incentivizes and promotes diversity in the Northeast utility space with the addition of wind farms, solar arrays, and hydro plants. It increases local jobs and increases tax revenue for New England towns.

“Providing renewable energy to local businesses is the core of Hampshire Power’s mission to empower local, sustainable and efficient economies in New England,” says Todd Ford, executive director, HCG. “Working with The Eastern States Exposition increases demand for keeping renewable power projects in our community, while educating businesses about the services we are able to provide locally.”

The Eastern States Exposition made the decision to transition all of its buildings to 100% green energy with Hampshire Power.

“Hampshire Power has long been devoted to investing money back into the local community,” says Coleman. “The Big E is on the forefront of this work.”

For more information on how to invest in local green energy initiatives, please visit the Hampshire Power booth outside the Massachusetts building on Thursday, September 21st.
