As with many affordable developments, it was important to Community Access to build 111 East 172nd Street with low long-term operating costs. With operating efficiency and resiliency a priority, Community Access hired Bright Power to install our Resilient Power Hub (RPH)—a combination of 53 kW solar PV, 18 kW battery storage, and 10 kW cogeneration unit.
The Resilient Power Hub creates much-needed cost savings year-round, while during an electric grid disruption, it runs critical equipment to keep residents safe.
With these technologies, Community Access will not only be able to avoid costly peak demand electricity, but in the event of a power outage, they will have backup electricity to power an elevator, water pumps, lighting to the corridors and exit stairwells, and the fire alarm. Importantly, the RPH will produce ongoing cost-savings so Community Access can provide resilient power that pays for itself over time, unlike a traditional generator.
