JuiceBox Energy (now Adara Power) installed an energy storage system at the community center that connects with the center’s rooftop solar panels. It reduces Gardner’s electric bills by storing excess solar energy generated during the day that is used later in the evening when higher peak energy rates are in effect. The JuiceBox system also provides a reliable source of clean, renewable backup power in the event of a grid outage, which helps secure a practical location where local residents can gather for news, support, and emergency services if necessary.
