Solar Emergency Microgrids
The benefits of Solar Emergency Microgrids with
Craig Lewis, Executive Director of the Clean Coalition
-Wednesday, March 22-
The Clean Coalition’s mission is to accelerate the transition to renewable energy and a modern grid through technical, policy, and project development expertise, and is currently developing the Peninsula Advanced Energy Community (PAEC).
PAEC is a groundbreaking initiative to streamline policies and showcase projects that facilitate local renewables and other advanced energy solutions like energy efficiency, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging infrastructure and Solar Emergency Microgrids (SEM). The PAEC will create pathways to cost-effective clean local energy and community resilience throughout San Mateo County and the City of Palo Alto; and beyond.
This work aligns with AIA National’s vision of promoting resiliency in our built environment. Come learn how you can support your commercial developments with renewable Microgrids to provide emergency power during critical energy grid failures.
