What’s in the Report

This project examined the feasibility of deploying microgrids to bolster emergency preparedness and resilience at 3 critical infrastructure facilities and 1 resilience hub in Wisconsin.

These studies identify a microgrid as a resilience solution for critical customer and community services, develop microgrid designs that incorporate varying power supply technologies, and utilize stakeholder input to evaluate the feasibility of each microgrid design.

Wondering how microgrid feasibility studies work or exploring microgrids for resilience in your own communities? This infographic presents summary results from Wisconsin and SEPA’s replicable 4-step process to engaging customers and stakeholders, understanding resilience needs and renewable preferences, designing conceptual microgrids, and conducting economic analysis.

Florence Elementary School

This project presents an opportunity to collaborate with a Wisconsin elementary school which is designated as an American Red Cross Shelter.

Heart of the Valley Metro Sewer District Wastewater Treatment Plant

This project presents an opportunity to collaborate with a Wisconsin wastewater treatment plant that serves 52,000 customers in Outagamie.

Holy Wisdom Monastery

This project presents an opportunity to collaborate with a Wisconsin monastery, which serves as an emergency shelter for the local town.

Sauk Prairie Police Department

This project presents an opportunity to collaborate with a Wisconsin police station which will house an emergency operations center (EOC) to.
