), the for-profit energy consumer advocacy organization, to immediately step in and manage grid reliability programs for 19 government facilities including universities, hospitals and correctional facilities statewide--turning these buildings into 'virtual power plants' that will help keep the lights on for thousands of Massachusetts residents and businesses in the event of a power crisis.
