Located on the north shore of Long Island, this community has experienced widespread and extended power outages as a result of extreme weather events, including Hurricanes Sandy and Irene. The proposed microgrid would incorporate a mix of existing and new combined heat and power, solar, and energy storage. It would provide electric and thermal energy to selected critical facilities during both normal operating conditions and during disruptions to the main or local grids, including St. Charles Hospital and Mather Hospital, Mary Haven Center of Hope, Port Jefferson School District, Suffolk County Wastewater Treatment Plan, Bridgeport-Port Jefferson ferry, the fire station, and village hall.
Microgrid Partners: D&B Engineers and Architects, Burns Engineering, GE Energy Consulting, and Global Common LLC.
