Neighborhood Energy Source The Port Microgrid

Monday, September 25, 2023
The City is working with community members on a pilot microgrid in The Port to provide a clean, reliable local energy source. A microgrid is a local and resilient energy system that provides electricity for participating buildings and, in case of emergency or extreme weather, can disconnect from the grid and prevent power loss by using local sources of generation like solar panels and battery energy storage systems. In The Port, we’re focusing on critical facilities and places like houses of worship to provide clean, resilient energy systems and better prepare our community for the impacts of climate change.
