Can your utility keep the lights on and your community up and running, even when severe weather knocks out the power grid? Green Mountain Power (GMP) is doing just that in Vermont with its innovative Resiliency Zones project. So far, GMP has partnered with four Vermont towns to install custom energy storage projects that pair clean power generation with utility-scale batteries to provide community resilience in the face of increasing storm-related grid outages. Starting with GMP’s pioneering microgrid in Panton (https://time.com/6082973/vermont- electric-grid/), the utility’s Resiliency Zones are transforming the greater grid while reducing costs for all GMP customers.
