Global Green and National Grid create Climate Resilient Disaster Preparedness Hubs in New York

Global Green, in partnership with National Grid, is creating climate resilient disaster preparedness hubs in communities in New York affected by Superstorm Sandy by installing advanced energy technologies. Up to five community sites will be upgraded, including the Church of God Christian Academy in Far Rockaway, Queens and the Martin Luther King Center in Long Beach, Long Island.

These resiliency hubs are centrally located in the community, and designed to provide emergency light, heat and power indefinitely during a crisis. The upgrades include grid-tied solar power and off-grid electric battery storage, as well as gas and electric efficiency improvements.

These projects serve as the next phase in Global Green’s Solar for Sandy effort that launched in 2013 to help increase resiliency against future storms through the installation of solar systems on community hubs.
