Decatur Island Microgrid Celebration

Join us (virtually) to Celebrate the Completed Decatur Microgrid!

When: February 24th @ 12 pm

Where: On Zoom (details below)

What: A video tour of the project with panel discussion and Q&A session

Who: All are welcome

Utilizing the Washington Department of Commerce CEF 2 Grid Modernization grant funds, OPALCO installed a one mega-watt battery storage project to couple with their first community solar array on Decatur Island. This microgrid is the first of many planned as the Co-op builds a local power supply and begins to decrease dependence on the mainland grid. The microgrid gives OPALCO the ability to operate their electrical distribution system with more efficiencies, cost savings and load control. It’s an exciting step towards a healthy and reliable energy future in the San Juans, and a key project as the Co-op prepares for the transition away from carbon/fossil fuels.

Please join us to get a look at the project, learn why it’s important and more about what the energy future looks like.
