PAEC will include at least one Solar Emergency Microgrid that the Clean Coalition is designing to provide renewables-driven power backup to critical facilities.
A Solar Emergency Microgrid has three basic components:
Monitoring, communications, and control
Solar Emergency Microgrids are designed to provide indefinite backup power for critical loads, like police and fire stations, emergency operations centers and shelters, and critical communications and water infrastructure.
This design and deployment plan is for a Solar Emergency Microgrid within the core PAEC region. The Solar Emergency Microgrid will provide renewables-driven power backup for critical facilities, such as police and fire stations, emergency operations centers, emergency shelters, and other facilities prioritized by the jurisdiction — providing environmental, economic, and resilience benefits to the area.

Santa Barbara School District launches game-changing Solar Microgrids
In an op-ed for T&D World, Executive Director Craig Lewis discusses the Clean Coalition's involvement in the state-of-the-art feasibility and RFP process that lead to the approval of solar microgrids across the Santa Barbara Unified School District.
On page 17, Voice Magazine reports on the six Solar Microgrids that are to be implemented at Santa Barbara Unified School District sites and the Clean Coalition's support in the study & proposal processes.
