The Port of Los Angeles, North America’s largest port, plans to install a $26. 6 million solar microgrid this year, as it moves toward becoming the first marine terminal to operate solely on renewable energy. The port is building the Green Omni Terminal Demonstration Project in partnership with Pasha Stevedoring and Terminals. It will demonstrate use of zero and near-zero emission technologies at a marine terminal.

The solar microgrid will include a 1.03 MW photovoltaic rooftop array, a 2.6 MWh battery storage system, bi-directional charging equipment, and an energy management control system.
During a power outage, the solar microgrid will be able to island from the central grid and keep power flowing at the 40-acre facility. It also will supply energy and basic goods to the community and serve as a base of operations for the military in the event of a disaster.
