S&C Provides Community Energy Storage to Smooth Solar Power in California

Mon, 2015-01-12 17:33 -- SCC Staff

California’s utility companies are up against a 2020 deadline to produce one-third of the state’s electricity using renewable generation sources, and this is generating concern about the stability of the state’s electric grid. In a California desert town recently, Council Lead Partner S&C Electric Co. provided products and support for a pilot microgrid project designed to enhance grid performance. 

During a recent utility outage, the island formed by the S&C equipment provided uninterrupted service for the entire 25-hour service disruption.

Read the case study linked below to learn more about the success of the project and why the utility is evaluating plans to include key elements of it as part of its overall renewable energy strategy.
