Powerwall Battery Workshop in Brattleboro Oct. 26

For homes (and businesses):  Tesla Powerwall Pilot Program from Green Mountain Power.

Do you want to safeguard your home (or business) against outages?  Would you like to have some reserve power when you need it?  If you already have some solar panels, would you like to extend their life?

Come to a workshop to learn about one advanced option for on-site battery storage.

You can learn more about the benefits of Tesla Powerwall batteries at a free informational workshop on Wednesday, October 26th from 5:00 – 7:00 pm at the Marlboro College Graduate Center, 28 Vernon Street in downtown Brattleboro.  Helen Bruno, on the Energy Service Team with Green Mountain Power, will review how the roll out of this technology is going in Vermont.  The doors open by 5:00 pm, and light refreshments will be

The Powerwall program is still a pilot, with a focus on homes.  While GMP has visions of opening it up to businesses, it is not yet at that phase.  However, GMP has applied the practical application to one commercial site and is very pleased with the outcome.  Helen will review that implementation as well as the many home installations.

The workshop is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and pre-registration is required. To register, or for more information, contact Michael Bosworth at mlb@sover.net or 802-258-6475.

The workshop is sponsored by the Brattleboro Energy Committee, Green Mountain Power, and the Marlboro College Graduate School.
