Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS) Battery Storage Systems– Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD)
Advanced Microgrid Solutions (AMS), asked Core States to provide design and construction of Tesla PowerPack systems to be installed at 10 Irvine Ranch Water District (IRWD) locations throughout Southern California.
Combined, this will be the largest network of energy storage systems for any public agency in the U.S. The battery storage systems allow for IRWD to store energy when rates are lowest and make it available at peak hours when rates are highest, saving IRWD roughly $500,000 in energy costs each year. The benefits don’t stop there. The local utility, Southern California Edison, can tap into the stored energy to avoid interruptions in services during power outages, natural disasters or any other possible 'bumps in the road'.
