The Marcus Garvey affordable housing complex in Brooklyn, NY uses a solar+storage microgrid system to cut electricity costs, improve grid reliability, and provide resilient backup power for tenants during extended outages. The money saved on energy expenses will be used to develop a new afterschool program for the tenants of the 625-unit housing complex. (Read a project profile here.)
