Blue Lake Rancheria Native American Reservation Microgrid - 950 kWh
Siemens, the Blue Lake Rancheria Native American reservation in Northern California, and Humboldt State University’s Schatz Energy Research Center will construct a microgrid on 100 acres that will power government offices, economic enterprises, and critical Red Cross safety shelter-in-place facilities.
Once complete, the microgrid will allow the reservation to island itself from local utility Pacific Gas & Electric. Siemens will be providing the Microgrid Management Software which will help control the operation of the energy system that will include a 500 kW solar array, 950 kWh battery storage, a biomass fuel cell, and diesel generation.
