Historically Grid-Tied Vermont State Park Opts for More Cost Effective SimpliPhi + Solar Microgrid

Emerald Lake State Park is a 430-acre state park in East Dorset, Vermont. Historically grid-tied, the power lines running through the park’s woods required repair after each winter. To solve that problem, park authorities decided to make the shift to a reliable off-grid system. The microgrid was designed and installed by Grassroots Solar. It features 10.24 kW of SolarWorld modules, an OutBack 8000W 48V inverter and 24 PHI 3.4 48V batteries providing 81.6 kWh of storage. It powers cabins for...

Power Security for Remote Communications at Fort Irwin

Fort Irwin National Training Center is a major United States military training area in the Mojave Desert. The facility has historically relied on lead acid batteries to provide backup power to mission critical wireless radio transmitters at nine sites. In 2018, Fort Irwin hired Northern Arizona Wind & Sun to design a more reliable off-grid power security solution for remote communications. The solar+SimpliPhi storage system includes 9 solar arrays comprised of 256W PV modules, four PHI 3.4 kWh batteries, a...

Off Grid – Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power

SIMPLIPHI POWER partners with ZeroBase to provide reliable, clean and uninterrupted off-grid energy storage and management for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. Five ecologically sensitive and environmentally regulated sites at the Owens Lake basin required discontinuing fossil fuel-based generators. The challenge was to find power storage that could withstand the hot ambient temperatures without the need for ventilation or cooling, risk of thermal runaway or chemical contaminants, acids and poisonous gasses. Zero emissions and risk No thermal runaway Non-hazardous Optimal temp...

Plus, our plug-and-play containerized solutions make on-site deployments fast and easy.

Remote Sites FAQs:

We’d like to reduce or eliminate our facility’s reliance on diesel generators. Can SimpliPhi help?
Many of our customers have previously deployed diesel generators as a way to extend access to power beyond the grid, and have turned to energy storage to significantly reduce fossil fuel usage the cost of transporting fuel. Typically, replacement systems are designed to run on solar + storage with a diesel generator for backup during inclement weather. With a SimpliPhi microgrid system, generators are downsized and used only as backup power to charge the batteries when needed, lowering costs and reducing noise and pollution.
Our remote test site is in the desert. Can SimpliPhi batteries withstand the heat?
SimpliPhi’s ruggedized batteries are able to withstand a wide temperature range -- from 4° to 140°F -- without any risk of thermal runaway, failure or fire. In fact, our batteries have been proven in desert combat zones on forward operating bases by the U.S. Army and Marine Corps.
