Critical Power Fractal Grid (CPFD)

With demand management enabled by CleanSparks mPulse software this CPFD is able to curtail non-critical energy demand in response to current or predicted conditions of the microgrid or utility grid. In addition the system can peak shave by supplying virtually instantaneous energy to cover sudden usage spikes and reduce energy costs. The grid architecture also incorporates cyber-physical security, a high value feature sought by the D.O.E.

Additional features include: Renewable Generation, Grid-Connecting/Islanding, Expandable, Flexible

Utility scale wholesale solar farm

Colton’s Electric Utility is the oldest utility in San Bernardino County. The utility serves 16,000 residential customers and 2,500 commercial and industrial customers and has a peak load of 90 megawatts. CleanSpark was selected to help Colton plan and build a wholesale solar farm that makes Coltons electric grid even more sustainable and renewable.

Strategy and Pilot Project

Client: Macerich (NYSE: MAC)
Location: Complete Portfolio
Completion: 2017

Excerpt from Macerich Annual Sustainabiliy Report Released 06/2018

On the way to our ambitious “macro” goal to Innovate to Zero, Macerich is developing a first-in-class microgrid utilizing clean energy technologies at a scale unprecedented in the industry. When complete, the installation at The Oaks in Thousand Oaks, CA, will be the largest, most resource-diverse net-zero commercial microgrid in North America.

The project builds on the success of a variety of single technologies piloted at other Macerich facilities in the past years by bringing them all together into a data-driven, economically optimized system. Integrating 5 MW of solar power, 1.1 MWh of advanced energy storage, and 700 kW of clean baseload power into an efficient, flexible, and stable microgrid, the project not only eliminates over 80% of our energy expenses, but also drastically reduces the property’s carbon footprint – all while keeping critical loads online in the event of a grid outage. Baseload generation is supplied from a hybrid system of clean distributed natural gas technologies.

For Macerich, the microgrid is a sound long-term business decision and a valuable tool in pursuit of our near zero emission goals.
