Renewable America is proud to be an active champion of our communities. We aim to develop meaningful long-term relationships with local landowners, stimulate economic growth, and expand access to affordable clean energy.
We strategically build and operate our projects in areas vulnerable to wildfires and other extreme weather, as well as in low-income communities that may not otherwise have access to low-cost clean energy.
Our solar and energy storage microgrids provide critical power to support vulnerable populations during potentially dangerous Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) and other events that threaten energy security.
With every project, we are making a commitment to invest in the local community. We take care to minimize environmental impact and work to collaborate with local stakeholders to ensure that we are meeting community needs and supporting job creation and economic growth.
Over the last decade, extreme weather events like wildfires have impacted countless communities and caused damage to grid infrastructure. Experts predict that these events will only become more frequent as the effects of climate change intensify. Now more than ever, a resilient local energy supply is necessary to ensure safety amongst our communities.
Our microgrids integrate energy storage with renewable solar energy to deliver cost-effective distribution-level power to those who need it most. During times of grid congestion or emergencies, the microgrids can provide critical reliable energy; at other times, they can support grid services such as peak shaving and reactive power supply. Our microgrids can provide essential resiliency, not only on site, but also on the full or partial feeder line.
