Cal Poly Humboldt


A renewable energy microgrid designed to keep Cal Poly Humboldt powered throughout outages is expected to be up and running by fall 2025. 
The microgrid has been designed by Cal Poly Humboldt’s Schatz Energy Research Center and will be a solar+battery system with 2.1 megawatts of AC solar and a 5.8 megawatt battery with 11.6 megawatt-hours of energy storage capacity. This will allow the campus to stay independently powered on clean energy for up to two days, depending on weather conditions. 
The microgrid’s solar panels will be installed on some campus buildings. Additionally, some parking lots, like G11, will have solar canopies covering parking spaces.
