Solar + storage ‘flexible’ microgrid installed at Colorado auto dealership for outage protection

xtensible Energy announced the installation of a microgrid at Ehrlich Toyota auto dealership in Greeley, Colorado. IPOWER Alliance of Lyons, CO developed the project and needed a way to provide flexible load control under all microgrid conditions without the usual high electrical expense.

Instead of designing the microgrid with several tiers of critical load subpanels, IPOWER Alliance designed and installed a 300-kWac SunPower PV system with SMA inverters and a 228-kWh Dynapower energy storage system with an Ageto microgrid controller. In addition, it installed Extensible Energy’s new product, DemandEx for Microgrids, which integrates with a microgrid controller to manage and optimize energy usage when off-grid or on-grid.
