Clean microgrid technology would give hospitals, fire departments, the military, and others access to sources of electricity that are virtually immune to power outages. When the lights go out - we can't have those we depend on be without power.
Respond to rising threat of wildfires
In 2018, California wildfires burned nearly four times as much land as a typical year — almost a million acres. This knocked out power for millions of Californians. Microgrid technology would ensure that vital services and institutions have clean, reliable power to keep the lights on.
Clean our air
When the power goes out, diesel generators emit toxic chemicals and harmful pollutants into the environment. Clean microgrid technology would clean our air by producing reliable energy without producing harmful toxins. These grids would produce substantially less greenhouse gases than existing electrical grids.
Save millions of gallons of water
Microgrid technology would promote electrical systems that use dramatically less water than the grids they would be replacing.
