Alameda County’s Santa Rita Jail smart grid demonstration project in Dublin, California, is the country’s largest CERTS-based microgrid with renewable generation and large-scale energy storage. Designed and constructed by Chevron Energy Solutions, this first-of-its-kind project is anticipated to be a powerful enabler toward a smarter grid. It brings together multiple partners and technologies to deliver an essential component of the U.S. Department of Energy’s plan to deploy an advanced, interconnected energy network capable of meeting the consumption needs of tomorrow.

The batteries are Lithium Ferrous Phosphate.

Total Capex for the Smart Grid project was $11,683,000. Funding sources included DOE, CEC, PG&E (SGIP), Chevron and Alameda County.
