Q&A with Mike Mathiesen of Mountain View Los Altos High School District
All over California, school districts are beginning to install energy storage. Mountain View Los Altos (MVLA) High School District was the first district in the state to combine energy storage with solar power generation and electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. At ENGIE Storage, we have years of experience helping K-12 school districts generate cost savings and improve the economics of sustainability measures with our GridSynergy® energy storage systems and software platform.
It is easy to talk about sustainability, especially when the timeframes for achieving quantifiable results are comfortably far in the future. It’s much harder to actually implement feasible sustainability programs that will have a significant business impact.
For many, “sustainability” evokes images of solar panels, windmills, and electric vehicles. When we at Green Charge use the word, we are indeed talking about reducing carbon emissions by using energy storage to bank renewable energy, thus reducing reliance on power from oil and coal. We also contribute to sustainability by giving utilities the means to leverage our distributed customer-sited energy storage so they can more efficiently balance grid demand.
