Snohomish PUD Breaks Ground on Microgrid and Clean Energy Technology Center
This project represents new technology and an approach that offers grid resiliency and renewable energy integration. The project will include a 500-kilowatt solar array with smart inverters, a 1,000 kW/1,000 kWh lithium-ion battery storage system and several vehicle-to-grid charging stations for use with the PUD’s electric fleet vehicles.
Grants from the Washington Clean Energy Fund Grid Modernization Program helped deliver the energy storage elements that enable these and other exciting new microgrid demonstration projects. Microgrid research, development and demonstration by our public private utilities is paving the way for more flexible and resilient community power systems.
