The 250-kilowatt (kW) solar PV system will be a combination of carport and ground-mount installations integrated with a 280 kW / 540-kilowatt hour (kWh) onsite behind-the-meter (BTM) battery storage solution. Along with its integrated smart electrical infrastructure and sophisticated controls, the microgrid system will allow the solar and storage to power the facility and maintain 100% of its operations during a power outage, reducing diesel fuel consumption and greenhouse gas emissions as well as extend fuel reserves
