Rhode Island AG Supported Siting Board’s Decision to Thoroughly Review Liquid Propane Gas Facility

Rhode Island Attorney General Peter Neronha released a statement supporting the Rhode Island Energy Facility Siting Board’s decision to conduct a thorough review of a proposed expansion to a liquid propane gas facility by Sea 3 Providence, LLC. The company petitioned the Siting Board, requesting that the project proceed without a full review, and AG Neronha’s office intervened. The Siting Board’s decision to deny Sea 3 Providence’s petition explained that the proposed project constitutes an “alteration of a major energy facility,” and thus requires a full application and subsequent review.
