DG HUB Connects V2G & Solar   

Sustainable CUNY's Smart DG Hub is working with NRG, a leading integrated power company in the U.S., on a 'Vehicle to Grid' (V2G) Project at CUNY.  Six plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) will be installed at CUNY's Queens College Campus, one of NYC's Coastal Emergency Shelters, in Flushing, NY.  The six PEVs with reverse power flow capabilities will be integrated into the campus fleet, and when connected to the bi-directional Electric Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE), can represent approximately 200 kWh of storage capacity.  The Smart DG Hub encouraged collaboration between SHINES, a solar-plus-storage project also at Queens College, and the V2G team. The projects will now be integrated by connecting one bi-directional electric vehicle into the resilient PV system being installed through SHINES.
