New Forum Announced: Increasing Reliability and Resiliency with Microgrids


Registration is now open for our upcoming regional forum: "Increasing Reliability and Resiliency with Microgrids: How to Implement from Design to Interconnection."


Microgrids are localized grids that have the potential to improve reliability and resiliency of the grid, offer a backup energy solution for communities during grid outages, and contribute to achieving California’s clean energy future. This forum aims to help local governments, utilities and the private sector understand the benefits of microgrids, what to expect when planning a microgrid and how to navigate some of the complexities of creating a feasible design model. Presentations will include an update on the State’s microgrid roadmap, project case studies and resources available to support the design process.
