Project Description

Project / Program Description

Brooklyn Microgrid (BMG) is a network of energy relationships that supports locally generated renewable energy. BMG will enable participants to build, buy and sell local and hyper-local community-generated energy directly with their neighbors while ensuring critical facilities have power in times of crisis. Additionally, BMG will facilitate the expansion of new technologies and ancillary services. Beyond being a test case for our community-based microgrid business model, BMG will provide a number of material benefits to the local community, including economic development/job creation, reduced pollution, and local spending.
