This webinar introduced the McKnight Lane Redevelopment Project, which redeveloped a defunct and abandoned mobile home park in Waltham, Vermont with 14 high-efficiency, resilient net-zero modular homes. The webinar focused on the inclusion of solar and battery storage in these modular rental units, which will allow them to island from the grid and operate independently during a grid outage. During normal operating conditions, when the grid is functioning, the local utility will draw on the batteries to reduce its operating costs; the tenants will receive resilient power for free.
