Eversource aims to become carbon neutral by 2030

Eversource Energy on Dec. 11 announced plans to become carbon neutral by 2030, a deadline that it said would make it the first investor-owned utility in the U.S. to achieve carbon neutrality.

"As New England's largest utility, we are proud to partner with our states and communities to achieve regional clean energy and carbon reduction goals," Eversource Chairman, President and CEO Jim Judge said in a company statement. "Today, we are going one step further by setting a goal for our own operations to help demonstrate that carbon neutrality is achievable."

To achieve this, the company plans to cut back on energy use by improving the efficiency of its 69 generation facilities, reducing the emissions of its 5,200 vehicles and increasing the reliability of its electric transmission and distribution system.

With the announcement, Eversource joins a growing list of large U.S. electric utilities that have set ambitious net-zero emissions or zero-carbon power supply targets.

Eversource said it also intends to lower sulfur hexafluoride in gas-insulated electric switchgear and replace bare steel and cast-iron natural gas distribution main lines to prevent methane leaks.
