San Diego Gas & Electric broke ground on the Clairemont microgrid, one of four projects the utility has planned at its existing substations. Once finished, the Clairemont microgrid will be able to provide backup power to San Diego Fire Station 36, the Balboa Branch Library and local schools such as Lafayette Elementary, Sequoia Elementary, Innovation and CPMA Middle Schools and Madison High School. Each microgrid project is paired with energy storage, with the four projects bringing an additional 39 MWs of battery capacity to the region. SDG&E currently has 95 MW of utility-owned energy storage online, with another 200+ MW in development.
