Empire State Plaza Microgrid

OGS and the NYPA partner up on an exciting new project: A state-of-the-art microgrid will be built to power, heat and cool Empire State Plaza in Albany. The microgrid will supply 90 percent of the power for the 98-acre downtown Albany complex and will be able to operate independently from the power grid in the case of an emergency or outage.
