Brookhaven Microgrid Feasibility Study

Community · Feasibility

The Town of Brookhaven and Sachem School District have suffered significant power outages from both warm-weather storms and winter nor’easters. The proposed microgrid would provide power to the town hall to enable it to act as an emergency operations center and for two adjacent Sachem schools to function as emergency shelters. Technology would include solar panels and two existing 10 kW wind turbines, fuel cells, battery storage, and/or microturbines powered by the onsite wastewater treatment plant. The project would also incorporate sophisticated monitoring software operated by Brookhaven National Laboratory that will maximize the cost-benefit of the electrical generation and storage capacity components of the microgrid.

Microgrid Partners: Town of Brookhaven, Sachem School District, and Brookhaven National Laboratory.
