   Philadelphia, Pennsylvania  --  The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) has announced the implementation of an integrated smart grid pilot project.

The project will capture the braking energy of trains on the Market-Frankford line and integrate that power into the regional electric grid.

The energy is captured through a large-scale battery storage system as the train brakes at each stop.

Viridity Energy is the vendor partner on the pilot project.
