Mammoth California utility Pacific Gas & Electric is scrambling to get new microgrids in place at 20 of its power substations ahead of this year’s autumn wildfire season.
PG&E “wants to have the microgrids installed by June 1, 2020 or at the latest September 1, 2020,” Microgrid Knowledge reported last month. The systems, part of a larger, 716.9-megawatt procurement required by state regulators, “will be used to keep electricity flowing when the utility shuts down power lines that could spark wildfires during windy and dry weather.”
