Microgrid Knowledge – Bracing for Multiple-Day Outages, Another California City Advances Microgrid Project
Another California community is moving ahead with a microgrid project, this one the city of Camarillo, which plans microgrids at five key city facilities in a move aimed at bolstering reliability while lowering electricity costs.
Four of the projects include backup diesel generators coupled with solar and battery storage. One project includes only solar and storage. Combined, the projects include about 4 MW of solar, 4.2 MWh of storage, 500 kW of new diesel capacity to go with 1.4 MW of existing diesel at a cost of $13 million.
