Designing and Building Advanced Microgrids for Critical Infrastructure
USA Microgrids is currently active in several major microgrid design, build, and operation efforts across North America. Notably, we recently completed initial construction of the OATI Microgrid Technology Center in Bloomington, MN. The next-generation data center showcases cutting-edge technologies, such as Combined Cooling, Heat, and Power (CCHP), solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind generation, and energy storage.
In our case it was really a very simple decision. After conducting a feasibility study, and considering the fact we would need to spend the money on backup generation anyway, moving forward with plans to build a microgrid made the most sense.
