“City of Binghamton Awarded Project
At the confluence of two great rivers, the Susquehanna and the Chenango, the City of Binghamton has sustained more than its share of flood-related damages — in both 2006 and 2011, much of the city was submerged. During these events, the city either lost or experienced diminished services of electricity, potable water, police and fire protection, as well as housing. The proposed microgrid would include combined heat and power, solar, and hydroelectric power. Power would be provided to Binghamton City Hall, Binghamton Police Department, Binghamton Fire Department, Binghamton Water Treatment Plant, YMCA of Broome, YWCA of Binghamton, Twin River Commons Student Housing Complex, Holiday Inn Arena, Bates Troy laundry, Kradjian Properties, Keystone Associates Architects, Engineers and Surveyors, and NYSEG. Partners: GE Energy Consulting, ASI Energy, EarthKind Energy and Keystone Associates Architects, Engineers and Surveyors, LLC.”
