RCN Boston Chooses Power Vendor That Delivers Green Energy
Among the First Telecom providers in the U.S. To Use Green Electricity
Boston - (February 20, 2018) RCN Boston announced today that it has chosen a new vendor that delivers green electricity to power the network to its residential and business customers. It is among the first telecom companies in the U.S. to use green electricity in this manner. The new power vendor, IGS Energy, will provide RCN the green electricity through wind power that is transmitted through the electrical grid. The partnership between RCN and IGS Energy was arranged by Mark Sterner of Sterner Energy, RCN’s energy manager. The use of green electricity will significantly reduce the percentage of RCN Boston’s carbon footprint.
“RCN is working with our new power vendor, IGS Energy, to use green electricity in powering our services to our customers,” said Jeff Carlson, RCN Boston SVP and General Manager. “Green energy is the wave of the future and RCN prides itself on being at the cutting edge, and the new partnership with IGS Energy is in keeping with our commitment to excellence for our customers.”
“IGS Energy is excited about this partnership that will provide electricity used to power all RCN facilities, power plants, and the power supplies that bring services to their residences and businesses,” said Doug Austin, Executive Vice President and Chief Sales Officer of IGS Energy.
“When you see the gray boxes on the telephone poles outside of your home, that is what powers RCN services to its customers and it is now running with green electricity,” said Sterner. “This is a milestone in the industry as cable, broadband and phone services are all dependent on electricity to operate and none have moved to using green electricity until now, with RCN making the switch.”
