Due to popular demand, we are repeating our “Battery Storage Basics” presentation on Tuesday, Feb. 25, from 5:30-7:00 p.m., at the Wharfinger Building, 1 Marina Way, Eureka. (new location). There will be additional time and space for Q&A and visiting the vendors.

Please RSVP to reserve your seat – nstephenson@redwoodenergy.org. or 707-269-1700.

Since the recent Public Safety Power Shutoffs, Humboldt County residents have been asking how they can make their homes and businesses more energy resilient, how they can utilize the electricity from their solar panels when the grid is down, how vehicle to home storage solutions work, and where to start when investing in a battery storage system. The Redwood Coast Energy Authority will again address these questions at a second public workshop on battery storage systems.
