CleanSpark, Solar Watt Solutions to build solar + storage microgrid at Orange County medical facility
EPC Solar Watt Solutions teamed with software and controls company CleanSpark on a new solar-plus-storage microgrid at a medical facility in Orange County, Calif., that will feature 100-kW rooftop and carport solar with 30 kW/70 kW battery. The site will utilize CleanSpark’s patented mPulse controller to optimize the solar plus storage resources to provide the customer with significant cost savings.

Based on prior results and the recent mVSO evaluation the medical facility is expected to save around 90% on the monthly energy costs. The facility owner anticipates that with CleanSpark’s solution they can secure a three-year payback on the fully installed system.
“The addition of CleanSpark’s software and engineering resources has allowed us to meet the increased demand in the market for solar plus storage solutions,” David Watt, President of Solar Watt Solutions said. “Their controls software and energy storage relationships have helped save our customers money and make them less reliant on the utility companies, especially in these uncertain times.”
Previously, CleanSpark announced it had executed a contract for a new Southern California microgrid, which has been successfully installed and deployed by Solar Watt Solutions with CleanSpark’s patented controls on site for resiliency.
“This is another success for CleanSpark’s strategy of engaging with large regional partners,” Zachary Bradford, CleanSpark’s President and Chief Executive said. “Solar Watt is helping residential and small commercial businesses save on their energy costs via solar and storage solutions as well as providing resiliency solutions.”
Have you checked out our YouTube page?
We have a ton video interviews and additional content on our YouTube page. Recently we debuted Power Forward! -- a collaboration with BayWa r.e. to discuss higher level industry topics as well as best practices / trends for running a solar business today.
Our longer running side project is The Pitch -- in which we have awkward discussions with solar manufacturers and suppliers about their new technology and ideas so that you don't have to. We've discusses everything from residential rail-less deck attaching and home solar financing to large-scale energy storage value stacking and utility-driven new home solar + storage microgrids.
We also post our Project of the Year announcements there! Interviews with this year's winners will be up starting the week of Nov. 8. Head there and subscribe today to stay on top of all this extra stuff.
