In summer 2016, CSU enlisted Advanced Microgrid Solutions to install the first fleet of Hybrid Electric Buildings® at an educational institution. The first system is located at CSU Long Beach and will be followed by installations at the CSU Office of the Chancellor and CSU Dominguez Hills. This state-of-the-art, multi-campus fleet of HEBs will reduce CSU’s peak energy costs by more than $3.3 million and provide enough energy storage capacity to power 2,000 homes. The systems will provide critical support to California’s electric grid and optimize building load at sites with existing and planned solar, as well as electric vehicle charging.
