Scale Microgrid Solutions is on a mission to make sophisticated microgrids as easy to deploy and finance as rooftop solar, said Timothy Hade, microgrid specialist for the company.
Under the terms of the agreement, Scale Microgrid Solutions will build, own and operate a proprietary hybrid microgrid system that leverages Schneider Electric EcoStruxure technology for Bowery’s newly commissioned facility in New Jersey, the most technologically sophisticated commercial farm in the world.
The new hybrid microgrid system will be built for the farm’s newly commissioned facility in New Jersey, which will be designed to support indoor vertical farming. That microgrid will involve a rooftop solar array and natural gas generator, coupled with a lithium-ion battery storage system. A cloud-connected system behind the meter will connect the microgrid.
Scale Microgrid Solutions has partnered with Schneider Electric to deliver microgrid for indoor vertical farm company Bowery Farming.
