On this 5th stop of our Connect21 video series, tour the substation with Massachusetts President Marcy Reed, and hear what former Massachusetts Senator Gail Canderas and local officials have to say about the difference upgraded infrastructure is making, particularly during storms.

Our video series started with an overview of Connect21 and includes footage of the important infrastructure projects we are working on in each of our jurisdictions. Visit here to watch any you’ve missed. Here are a few more projects you can look forward to learning about:

-  Clarkson University’s micro grid project in Upstate New York
-  Worcester’s Smart Energy Solutions project in Massachusetts
-  Rhode Island’s Aquidneck Island reliability project
-  Grid Modernization in Massachusetts

We hope you’ll visit our connecting site and give us feedback in the comments section as you take the series’ tour. The future of energy belongs to all of us, and we want to hear your voice.
