University Orthopedics Helping Boost Rhode Island’s Solar Energy Supply Through Revity Energy Partnership

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. — University Orthopedics, the region’s largest orthopedic practice, announced today that it is helping to increase the production of clean, sustainable solar energy in Rhode Island through commercial collaboration with Rhode Island-based solar developer Revity Energy.

Revity develops, builds, owns, and operates solar energy generation facilities that feed clean electricity directly to the local utility grid. As part of a virtual net metering program, University Orthopedics’ subscription to a shared solar array will help finance the solar energy system. In return for the practice’s share of the electricity produced and sent to the grid, Revity will give UOI monthly bill credits.

These reduced energy costs will enable UOI to reallocate funds toward enhancing patient care. Furthermore–by helping boost the generation of clean, solar energy–UOI is reinforcing its commitment to sustainable practices and supporting the local community’s transition to cleaner, more affordable energy sources.

“In addition to providing world-class care, University Orthopedics has always been committed to being a good neighbor and responsible corporate citizen,” said University Orthopedics CEO Weber Shill. “By partnering with Revity Energy, not only are we reducing our own energy costs, we’re also reducing our carbon footprint, thus improving community health through lower emissions.”
