The Red Hook New York Rising Community Reconstruction Planning Committee will host a community information session on how a $100,000 grant will be used to conduct a feasibility study on the creation of a local energy network able to separate from the larger electrical grid during extreme weather events or emergencies.

The Red Hook Community Microgrid project team also includes Friends of Brooklyn Community Board 6, Inc., Smarter Grid Solutions and IMG Rebel. The grant was provided by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority.
