Microgrid – Vacherie Ranch

SIMPLIPHI POWER’S storage solution was integrated in a microgrid for a Ranch in West Sonoma County, California. Prior to the installation, the family relied on diesel generators to power its agricultural and recreational operations. In the search for a better solution, it quickly became apparent trenching lines for a grid connection was cost prohibitive. Instead, rugged, highly efficient and reliable SimpliPhi batteries, combined with solar, now allows the ranch to be powered 24/7 by a sustainable microgrid that has saved the family over half a million dollars. The containerized solution, utilizing 25 of SimpliPhi’s PHI 3.4 kWh batteries and abundant solar generation, made same-day deployment and scalability a reality.

SIMPLIPHI’S SOLUTIONS offer a high level of certainty in terms of economics, lifetime throughput, available capacity and non-toxicity. Without having to offset heat generation, the thermal stability and resiliency around a wider thermal window, compared to other batteries, eliminates catastrophic failure typically associated with cobalt-based lithium batteries – which is especially important for remote, hot locations,” said Rody Jonas, co-founder and president of Pure Power Solutions.
