San Diego Gas & Electric

Borrego Springs Microgrid


San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) will conduct a pilot scale proof-of-concept test in San Diego, California of how advanced GridWiseTM information-based technologies and DER may increase asset utilization and reliability of the power grid in a nationally scalable approach. The application of appropriate technologies in an integrated fashion has the potential to allow more power to be delivered through existing infrastructure and reduce the need to build more in the future.
