Energy Storage for Rural Affordable Housing: The McKnight Lane Redevelopment Project

Wednesday, September 27, 2017 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

This webinar provided operational and economic updates on the McKnight Lane Redevelopment Project, a rural solar+storage affordable housing project that has been in operation since October 2016. The all-electric, net-zero homes demonstrate how behind-the-meter solar PV and battery storage systems can bring economic benefits and energy security to tenants, while simultaneously enabling utilities to manage peak energy demand and reduce costs for all customers.
