*Support PIPP (Percentage Income Payment Plan) for low-income Rhode Islanders.
*No more enormous rate hikes for a multi-national corporation (National Grid) that makes billions in profit, while thousands of Rhode Islanders are shut off from utility service due to unaffordable bills.
*As we move toward renewables, consider the benefit of future utility systems that are community-based, sustainable for both people and planet.

Right now, Rhode Islanders living under the Federal Poverty line routinely spend 44 percent of their income on utilities. While storm-related temporary power outages make the news, each year over 20,000 RI households are put through the trauma of utility termination due to unaffordable bills. Many go weeks or months without access to basic needs. A PIPP plan would allow people with the lowest incomes to pay a more manageable amount for their utilities and help stop the shut-off crisis in Rhode Island.
