If the net impact is a positive number, the company would benefit financially from passage of the Energize Rhode Island bill. If negative, all other things being equal, the company would experience a net decrease in profitability. Either way, you should compare that impact to the company's gross revenue or net profit to gauge the significance of that effect. By encouraging local renewable energy and energy conservation -- thus redirecting into our local economy some fraction of the $3 billion dollars per year now going to energy suppliers in other states and countries -- Energize Rhode Island will grow the state's economy. That economic growth is expected to outweigh the direct net impact on most Rhode Island companies.
