Montecito fire protection district solar microgrid to be a national model

from Clean Technica

A project to build a solar and storage community microgrid within the Montecito, California, fire district is being developed as a national model for other communities across the country, according to the Clean Coalition and the World Business Academy. The two organizations are boot-strapping the project and have raised some funding for the microgrid, within the unincorporated community of about 10,000 in Santa Barbara County. The size of the system will be 70 kilowatts of solar and 175 kW/hours of lithium-ion energy storage. The Clean Coalition and the World Business Academy work will involve staging the Montecito project, which includes aligning stakeholders, performing engineering and economic analyses, and identifying investors to leverage the tax credits that are available to the parties that will own the Community Microgrid assets. more
