A new case study highlighting SDG&E’s Borrego Springs microgrid has been released by the Association for Demand Response & Smart Grid (ADS) and the Demand Response Coordinating Committee last week examining how the site was developed.

The study 'San Diego Gas & Electric: A Utility-Owned Microgrid' is the sixth analysis carried out by the association. The site was chosen as the subject of the case study due to "its innovative approaches and its applicability to jurisdictions for utilities of any size or governance structure".

The microgrid is currently being upgraded to provide a proof-of-concept as to how IT and distributed energy resources can increase utility asset utilisation and reliability for the 2,800 customers of Borrego Springs
