Kaiser Permanente | Richmond, CA
First Essential Power Healthcare Microgrid in California
Faraday Microgrids was awarded a $4.77MM grant by the California Energy Commission (CEC) in 2015 to build the first renewable energy microgrid for a California hospital. The Kaiser Permanente project in Richmond included the following: analysis of facility energy consumption; collaborative design, engineering, permitting, and interconnection; construction and commissioning; and operation.
SAN BENITO HEALTHCARE FOUNDATION CLINIC MICROGRID | HOLLISTER, CA
Automatically Islandable System to Keep Facility Operations Running when the Grid is Unreliable
Faraday Microgrids was engaged to design, specify, procure, and supply the battery energy storage systems (BESS), balance of systems, and integration for the San Benito Renewable Energy Microgrid. We developed a fully integrated 500 kilowatt-hour battery energy storage system with power conditioning and a third party controller joined to a forty-seven-kilowatt rooftop solar array.
KAISER PERMANENTE | ONTARIO, CA
First Renewable Energy Microgrid to Automatically Island and Support Hospital Emergency Power
In 2019, Faraday Microgrids was awarded an $8.35MM grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to build the first renewable energy microgrid capable of sustaining the Critical branch of a hospital’s power system for 10 hours or more. Not only will this be the largest capacity healthcare microgrid built to date in California, but it will also be one of the largest in the Nation.
