Event Details

Join Women's Energy Network Greater New York City for a tour of MicroGrid Network's Williamsburg battery energy storage site and a summer social networking event.

We will gather at MicroGrid Network's office and their outdoor patio to enjoy the beginning of summer. MicroGrid Network's will give an overview of their business and projects, and then they will lead small groups to tour the battery on site (5MW / 20 MWh) and answer questions. WEN will host a happy hour with drinks and snacks on the patio as groups rotate in and out of visiting the site.

*As the battery is outdoors, this is a weather dependent event! Keep your fingers crossed for a blue sky day.
