Six Rhode Island cities and towns have joined forces to buy electricity directly from a competitive supplier — through a municipal aggregator — in an effort to save money for local residents and businesses. Barrington, Central Falls, Newport, Portsmouth, Providence and South Kingstown are launching the state's first 'community choice aggregation' program, and it's coordinated by Good Energy, a national company that provides energy services to municipalities. The communities will purchase power from NextEra Energy Services LLC instead of from Rhode Island Energy, the state's dominant utility.
