Faraday Microgrid Systems

What Is a Microgrid?

Microgrids, unlike the bulk Grid, are systems designed to produce, store, and intelligently deliver energy to your building, campus, or community.

Because they operate autonomously on behalf of your facilities, Microgrids can not only deliver significant utility bill savings, but they can sustain your operations during power outages from both natural or human-made events.  Faraday Microgrids are sustainable, cost effective, and cutting edge to deliver optimal performance while supporting your journey to Sustainability.

Recent Microgrid Projects


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.

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.


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.
