The Southeast’s First
Community-Scale Microgrid

Smart Neighborhood’s community-scale microgrid, made up of solar panels, battery storage and back-up generation, will be built to generate energy for the neighborhood and the electric grid.

The microgrid will sit on 5 acres and will have the capability to generate more than 600,000 kilowatt-hours of energy annually, enough to power a neighborhood the size of Reynolds Landing.
