11-08-2017 15:50

Summary

The Blue Lake Rancheria Microgrid sets a new standard for remote community energy projects. Nestled in the rolling forests of Northern California, Blue Lake Rancheria is in the heart of PG&E’s outage-prone service territory. With goals including support for 7 days islanded operation, 25% reduction in energy cost, and CO2 reduction of 195 tons; the Rancheria invested in solar, battery storage, and advanced controls to support their community in aspects of: Emergency, Economics, and Environment. This presentation will discuss the results and lessons learned related to design, testing, and operation of the Microgrid in islanded, grid-connected, and transitioning states.
