The City of Binghamton received a $1,000,000 grant to study the feasibility of a downtown microgrid, a sustainable energy system independent from the main power grid in the event of an outage of natural disaster. In March, 2017 the City was one of 11 municipalities across the state to receive $1 million. If Binghamton wins the next NY Prize it will receive state funding for construction of the grid.
