By integrating solar, wind and cogeneration, Taylor Farms saw a reduction of 12,190 metric tons of CO2 emissions in one year, a 94% decrease from before the microgrid was completed. This is equivalent to the GHG emissions from 2,588 vehicles driven for one year. A new Concentric Power report explores the project.

 Taylor Farms’ Gonzales, Calif.,  processing facility had existing wind and solar components, but they functioned independently of each other. The goal of a microgrid and cogen project was to integrate these existing distributed energy resources (DERs) and add firm power to form a microgrid system that could effectively take the facility off grid — by way of an innovative microgrid controller.

Concentric Power’s intelligent microgrid controller was installed to integrate and optimize all DERs, including the addition of a 2.0 MW cogeneration unit that the company developed specifically for the site. As part of its long-term service agreement, Concentric Power’s operations and maintenance technicians and engineers manage and optimize the equipment and provide technical services and ongoing reporting to the customer.
