Here at muGrid Analytics, we love to help clients make data-driven decisions regarding their energy assets. We use our Redcloud energy optimization platform every day to determine the optimal sizing and dispatching of battery energy storage across staked revenue streams. Other times we’ve used big data techniques to identify, in near real-time, which inverter has failed on a solar array, ensuring that the system continued to perform to produce electricity at peak capacity.
But there’s often one small problem — we need data! Without data, we’re kind of useless.
muGrid Analytics is pleased to announce that we have been selected as a featured technical consultant for the Solar in Your Community Challenge sponsored by the Department of Energy. This $5M nationwide competition is aimed at expanding solar to low and moderate income (LMI) households; state, local, and tribal governments; and non-profit organizations, all of which have been underserved in the rapidly developing solar market.
As a technical expert, we will be available to support dozens of teams from around the country as they develop innovative, scalable business models that aim to deploy solar projects ranging in size from 25 kW to 5 MW. The target customer mix in the shared community solar model is at least 20% LMI or 60% non-profit. Part of the DOE SunShot Initiative, DOE is making seed funding available to the teams to develop their concepts as well as prize money at the completion of the program.
