The U.S. Department of Energy announced on Tuesday support for a three-year collaboration with the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and the New York Power Authority (NYPA) that includes designing a solar+storage system at Queens College of the City University of New York (CUNY), under the SunShot Initiative’s ‘Sustainable And Holistic Integration Of Energy Storage And Solar PV’ (SHINES). The 50 to 60 kW PV system would ideally be built near the FitzGerald Gymnasium, which serves as a coastal storm shelter for the community.
