The Issue

In recent years, loss of electricity has become more frequent in high fire threat districts not only due to increased catastrophic wildfires and but also due to Public Safety
Power Shutoffs (PSPS). During a PSPS (or other outage), fossil-fuel backup generators are typically used to maintain operations, so a clean energy alternative is needed to provide essential power.

Project Innovation

One-Cycle Control will develop and demonstrate a clean energy silicon-carbide enabled mobile backup generator, combining wind and solar renewable generation with battery storage, to provide renewable back up power during grid outages.

Project Goals

Demonstrate the OCC-MORBUG carrier systems’ ability to provide backup power.
Demonstrate the OCC-MORBUG carrier system in three different climate zones.
Demonstrate that the OCC-MORBUG carrier system can be rapidly deployed (two hours or less) and taken down.
Train workers from LI/DAC communities to operate and maintain the OCC-MORBUG carrier systems.
Reduce pollution, noise, and fossil fuel consumption resulting from the use of fossil fueled backup generators.

Project Benefits

This Agreement will result in the ratepayer benefits by (1) providing quiet and pollution free backup power when/where ratepayers need, (2) increasing market adoption of clean-energy mobile back up power, (3) reducing electricity consumption, and (4) creating green job opportunities for LI/DAC areas.
