Carbon Neutral by 2030

We’re building a clean energy future for our customers, communities and our own families here at Eversource. It’s why we’ve made one of the most ambitious goals of its kind – to have our operations be carbon neutral by 2030.

This goal is a testament to our vision of leading the industry in sustainability. We are supporting regional climate change goals by reducing our own emissions and enabling a cleaner grid. Our investments in renewable energy sources, like wind and solar power, will also play an important role in achieving the ambitious emission-reduction targets of our states.

We will reach our goal by improving the efficiency of our operations and implementing innovative technologies to reduce emissions.

Our strategy focuses on five key areas:

Electrifying our fleet
Replacing aging natural gas infrastructure
Upgrading facility lighting and HVAC systems
Identifying ways to reduce sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) in our electrical equipment
Minimizing line loss, the energy lost when power is transmitted and distributed across our electric system

As we look ahead, we believe that addressing the impact of our carbon footprint will require innovative solutions. That's why we are collaborating with industry partners and engaging our employees to develop solutions. And for the emissions we can't eliminate, we will seek creative carbon offset programs that address our carbon balance and benefit the communities in which we operate.

Our commitment to sustainability is more than just operations. It’s an opportunity to support the communities that we serve and have a positive impact.
