SoCalGas planning an advanced energy model that includes wind, solar & storage

Southern California Gas Co. (SoCalGas) announced that it will partner with the University of California-Irvine’s  Advanced Power & Energy Program to design an “Advanced Energy Community” in an underserved neighborhood in Huntington Beach.  The community will be planned as a replicable model that optimizes a full spectrum of diverse energy options, including solar, wind, and renewable natural gas.  It will also consider the capability of storing wind- and solar-generated energy with power-to-gas technology.

SoCalGas is providing $150,000 in co-funding for the Huntington Beach project, which was proposed in response to a California Energy Commission Electric Program Investment Charge solicitation.
