Yotta Energy will use $1.23 million California grant to install solar + storage in low-income community

by admin

Panel-level battery maker Yotta Energy has been awarded a $1.23 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to develop solar and storage systems to address energy inequalities in low-income communities. This project involves battery backup for an 11-story apartment complex in Santa Ana, California. In addition to the economic benefits, the project will also look at reducing greenhouse gas emissions, improving the surrounding environment, and impacting existing utility grids by adding solar and storage batteries to low-income communities. .

“Our state has long been committed to installing and integrating renewable energy, but resource scarcity has slowed adoption in low-income areas, resulting in rising air pollution levels in those areas.” said CEC Chairman David Hochschild. Work with Yotta Energy on this project to demonstrate the viability of these installations and how similar types can be replicated statewide. ”

Yotta will work with Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) and solar developer Promise Energy. Through replication and scaling, Yotta hopes to extend its solution to other similar locations around the country, offering sustainable initiatives to make solar energy storage and use more accessible.

Yotta Energy CEO Omeed Badkoobeh said: “Not only will this project lead to a cleaner and healthier local environment, but it will also open the door to economic prosperity and growth for Santa Ana. With that in mind, we look forward to everyone having access to a reliable energy supply.”

The project is scheduled to start in August 2022. Prior to installing the solar+storage system, Yotta will also collect data at his SolarTAC Colorado facility, a large-scale pilot facility for solar technology.
