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.
