Microgrids, Resiliency and PERCs

EcoMotion’s leadership team will be “Live”, Tuesday, September 18th, giving the most comprehensive webinar yet on planning, financing, installing, and managing microgrids at campuses, cities, and multi-complex sites. EcoMotion has implemented its unique design for Powered Emergency Response Centers (PERCs) that can supply electricity indefinitely, even when the grid is down by coupling battery storage with a solar system. 

Ted Flanigan, founder of EcoMotion, and Michael Ware, Senior Energy Executive, will lead this webinar and take participants through the actionable steps they used to bring six installed PERCs to campuses in California. 

You will leave knowing: 

  • Buildings, campuses, and communities that are ideal candidates for PERCs and microgrids 

  • How to design a carbon-free microgrid (PERC) 

  • Financing options for microgrids, program funding, and incentives 

  • Engaging the community and promoting resiliency leadership 

  • Managing, maintaining, and making the most of your microgrid environment 

  • Timeline from great idea to great installation 

Join LGSEC and EcoMotion to power your future! 



Rental Housing Program Survey

Does your jurisdiction have an existing rental housing program/policy? Let us know here!

Build It Green and StopWaste, an Alameda County public agency aimed at reducing waste, invite you to participate in a California rental housing program survey. The purpose of this survey is to gather information about rental housing programs in California to evaluate the potential for a rental policy to drive energy efficiency improvements. By completing this survey, you will help us understand the opportunity to support local governments to increase energy efficiency upgrades across the state. 

We expect this survey to take about 10 minutes to complete. Thank you for your participation!
