Advancing Utility Microgrid Performance in Borrego Springs, California

Microgrids are small, self-empowered grids that can operate independently or be connected to the larger grid. In collaboration with San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E), NREL is constructing a scaled model of the utility’s microgrid expanding in Borrego Springs, California, employing power hardware and real-time digital simulators at the ESIF to validate the system's performance before it is deployed.
