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.”

A transplanted New Zealand Scots/Maori academic/grandmother/random singer and sometime activist, my life is shaped by a deep conviction of the necessity for active critical engagement in the multi-faceted global and local crises of being and survival of species that confront us in the 21st century, the urgency of re-visioning the meaning of thriving together, and the contribution of Indigenous knowledge systems to a truly sustainable and just global society.
