An Iron Edison Lithium Iron battery is part of an energy system upgrade at the Science Barge, a prototype sustainable urban farm and education center in Yonkers, NY. A ribbon cutting ceremony was held to welcome a new era for the Science Barge, which is a fully functioning demonstration of renewable energy supporting sustainable food production. Open for weekday educational programs and field trips, the barge is docked in downtown Yonkers.


Iron Edison is thrilled to be a part of this unique and inspiring project, and would like to thank our partner solar installer Croton Energy for their excellent work on the new battery and solar system.
