Located on a peninsula, Port Washington Village is highly vulnerable to severe weather and experiences regular electrical outages. The proposed microgrid would use solar, energy storage, energy efficiency, and natural gas generation. Power from the proposed microgrid would be provided to local police and fire offices, a water treatment center, several school buildings, an animal shelter, a library, the Landmark on Main which is a cultural resource, and senior-housing center.
Microgrid Partners: Town of North Hempstead, Residents For a More Beautiful Port Washington, Port Washington Police Department, the Port Washington Fire Department, The Port Washington Water District, The Port Washington School District, the Town of North Hempstead Animal Shelter, Port Washington Library, and the Landmark on Main.
