On the Grid

raifisEG150.jpgUsing a new Simply Grid setup in Union Square, New York City food cart Rafiqi's has become the city's first to operate on grid-powered electricity. According to Gothamist, most of the city's food carts operate on generators, but the Simply Grid pilot program hopes to add more outlets to provide "less expensive energy to vendors while also cutting down on pollution and carbon dioxide emissions by up to 9 metric tons."
