The Triple Threat: Community Choice, Microgrids and Community Solar – Elisa Wood, Microgrid Knowledge

“Local energy is a term in search of a definition. Sometimes it’s a microgrids, sometimes community solar, sometimes a town or city buying its own power.

Now in New York, a state exploring disruptive energy’s cutting edge, the three come together under a model being planned by Joule Assets and Good Energy.

The partnership wants to help communities marry microgrids, community solar and community choice aggregations (where a community contracts on its own for energy supply rather than relying on a utility.)

Glenn Weinberg, Joule Assets manager of special projects, calls the model the “triple threat — a real new community energy paradigm.”
