IRWD Wins Innovation Award For Energy Storage Program

The IRWD Energy Storage Project was recently selected as a winner at the 6th Annual Golden Hub of Innovation Awards by the Association of California Cities - Orange County (ACC-OC).

The Golden Hub of Innovation Awards recognizes local agencies, cities and individuals that successfully implement programs and policies that save taxpayer dollars and improve services for local residents.

IRWD won the award for its Energy Storage Project, a public-private partnership with Advanced Microgrid Solutions to install the largest network of energy storage systems at a public water agency in the United States. The cutting-edge grid support project will enable IRWD to store energy using Tesla batteries, allowing it to reduce demand from the grid when requested by the utility without interrupting water treatment operations and reducing the need for additional supply from fossil fuel generation in a region challenged by the closure of the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station.
