This summer New Sun Road welcomed several interns. We value their energy and contribution ….these are their stories …
RICHMOND, Calif.—Aug. 10, 2022—New Sun Road partners with Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) to provide its Stellar Microgrid OSTM as the remote monitoring and control platform for PG&E’s growing fleet of hybrid renewable energy standalone power systems. These rural grids can permanently replace overhead distribution power lines or provide power during Public Safety Power Shutoffs (PSPS) in High Fire-Threat Districts (HFTD), improving reliability and significantly reducing wildfire risk.
When Santa Clara County commissioned Pallet Shelter to build Casitas de Esperanza, a 100-bed community to shelter the unhoused, they needed to figure out how to power the site. The location was outside the old San Jose City Hall, which lacked reliable utility power. Rather than paying the utility company’s $600,000 quote or power the site completely with generators, the county contracted BoxPower to energize the shelter with two microgrids: containerized solar + battery + backup generator.
Meet some of the women from Alta Verapaz who have shared their stories of growth and hope. With first-time access to digital services and education, these women are embracing the transformative opportunity for themselves and their families. New Sun Road is working to expand digital access so that more women and under-served communities can benefit through the projects such as the Stellar Ixq-Saq’e (SIS) Digital Community Centers.
On a sunny day, in a neighborhood in Kentucky, electronics and wires are laid out on a backyard table. Nate has just come back from Home Depot with some tools and is talking with Jose on the phone. Today they will install Stellar Edge™ to collect data from a solar-powered, “mobile microgrid” trailer enabled by the Internet of Things (IoT).
