Solar Grid Storage installed a PowerFactor250™ system within this demonstration microgrid project and continues to operate and maintain the system, which came online in April 2013. Penn State University runs the GridSTAR center whose mission is to empower regional stakeholders through the integration of renewables and advanced technologies such as energy storage and electric vehicle charging. This microgrid provides an immersive learning environment through educational activities and business partnerships. Utilities, grid operators, manufacturers, installers, policy makers and developers will all gain expertise and experience through this project helping to usher in a more efficient, cost effective, reliable and resilient grid of the future. The PowerFactor250™ system provides critical data serving the GridSTAR mission.
