And speaking of green power in RI, here's a reminder for the environmentally oriented who haven't gotten around to signing up for Green Start yet. Do it now! For 1.5 cents per kilowatt hour, you can have all your electricity created by renewable sources. It's about $4-5/month for me, and it's tax deductible.
