SCE Microgrid Webinar Offered on Tuesday

Electric reliability is the No. 1 reason customers install microgrids, which are self-contained, independent power systems that serve one or more power customers for limited periods.

Public Safety Power Shutoff (PSPS) events were rare in the past. With the fire season existing nearly year-round today, it’s a good time to think about the future in terms of reliability.

Microgrids are helping advance energy systems by providing an array of grid-enhancing services for resiliency, flexibility and savings, along with clean renewable energy. 

HASC and Southern California Edison are working together to provide support and awareness to hospitals considering microgrids. This workshop is designed to provide information to hospital administrators on the future of microgrids and to foster an interactive discussion. The course will address the issue of aging diesel generators and the options for renewable sources in the future. Data will be shared regarding qualitative and quantitative benefits of a microgrid.

The webinar runs from 9 to 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 5. 

The session is offered at no cost to HASC members.
