Building pathways for local renewable energy
The Clean Coalition is engaged in a number of exciting developments in California and beyond.
Over the past three months, the Clean Coalition team has made significant strides accelerating the transition towards renewable energy and a modern grid. Our groundbreaking Hunters Point Community Microgrid Project, being conducted in collaboration with Pacific Gas & Electric, is proving the technical and economic viability of local renewable energy. Through this project, we have established a methodology that enables any utility to plan their grid for an optimized portfolio of distributed energy resources — using existing grid modeling tools. We are leveraging this knowledge to strengthen implementation of the Distribution Resource Plans mandated by California’s Assembly Bill 327.
The Clean Coalition is engaged in a number of exciting developments outside of California. In New York, we are staging to bring a Community Microgrid to PSEG Long Island’s territory as part of their “Utility 2.0” effort. And in sunny Arizona, we are supporting Tucson Electric Power’s recently proposed pilot program to spur deployment of wholesale-interconnected local solar. Additional details on these activities — and many others — are available here.
As always, thank you for your support of the Clean Coalition and our work making clean local energy accessible now.
