ARDA Power and The GridSquare Join Forces and Commence Work on Microgrid Opportunities in Upstate New York
ARDA Power and The Gridsquare today announced a strategic alliance to introduce ARDA Power’s unique DC-connected Microgrid Solution to customers of The GridSquare. The companies have already begun working on several identified project opportunities that range from large public infrastructure systems, to commercial and industrial facilities, to college campuses. The projects, which are located in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, may also qualify for funding from NYSERDA through PON and other programs.
“We are pleased to collaborate with The GridSquare - pairing our innovative microgrid solution with their project expertise and local market knowledge”, said Peter Lewis of ARDA Power. “ARDA’s DC-connected microgrid solution provides a perfect way to bring the benefits of a microgrid - including resiliency and increased renewables - to commercial and industrial buildings today without the requirement for complex custom engineering or costly interconnect applications, and without waiting years for development of a community microgrid”, noted Anthony Guarneri of The GridSquare. “And since ARDA’s modular solution is expandable and is capable of providing sophisticated grid services it can integrate easily with a local community microgrid when available”, said Aleksey Toporkov, President of ARDA Power.
