The Clean Coalition’s Community Microgrid Initiative (CMI) is ready to revolutionize the way that electric grids are designed and operated based on significant levels of clean local energy.
Community Microgrids combine solar, energy storage, electric vehicles, and other distributed energy resources in an electrical substation grid area (typically serving 5000 to 20,000 customers) to produce at least 25% of a community’s energy needs from local renewables while enhancing power quality and community resilience. CMI projects scale local renewables and other distributed energy resources in a systematic and holistic way, resulting in a 100 times jump in the deployment of clean local energy.
