531 lb


The Port of Long Beach will build and demonstrate a $7.1 million “microgrid” to show the promising new technology’s effectiveness in providing a clean, reliable supply of electricity for critical operations at the nation’s second-busiest seaport.  With the help of a $5 million grant from the California Energy Commission, the Port will install a solar carport, power storage systems and advanced controls at its security headquarters, the Joint Command and Control Center.  The goal of the California Energy Commission’s grant is to accelerate development of microgrids that can also improve participation in utilities’ demand response programs, where users agree to limit energy use during peak periods.
