Solar + Storage, Microgrid BeaUtilities

Thursday, October 12, 2017
1:30 pm to 3:00 pm

Combining clean energy production and storage creates a new distributed generation paradigm, the interconnected microgrid. These mini-utilities are being integrated into communities for increased resiliency, decreased toxic emissions, and climate change mitigation - but can they also be beautiful? Public aesthetics are shared community values, bringing people together, rather than inciting NIMBY battles. This session will present case studies of current solar + storage systems and creative solutions for the future of how micro-grids are implemented on the community level as public beautilities.
