California Tribe Installs Renewable Hybrid Microgrid

The Bear River Band of the Rohnerville Rancheria is installing the first California Tribal renewable microgrid system this summer in Loleta, California. The Bear River Band’s new energy system is the only system of its kind combining wind energy, solar energy, and advanced energy storage.

Working with JLM Energy, the Tish Non Community Center on the Bear River Rancheria, will install an advanced energy storage system, complemented by onsite renewable energy generation. JLM’s Gridz system will provide a 30kW microgrid. The system will seamlessly support the building’s operations during a power outage. In addition, the system actively works to reduce demand charges. The Gridz microgrid solution is supported by a 100kW photovoltaic solar system and twenty of JLM’s Zefr wind turbines, providing an integrated approach to sustainable energy.
