Microgrids continue to be a hot topic in California. Three recent articles provide some perspective on the current state of play. Two of the articles discuss concerns people have with the evolving rules in California, calling them too restrictive. A third article reports on the action by a Wisconsin utility to install and own 30 MW of microgrids in its territory in 22 projects. Interesting approach, but unlikely to be a path followed in California, even though the utilities would probably benefit from doing so.
