Bimbo Bakeries bakes up solar microgrids in California

Bimbo Bakeries has contracted with GreenStruxure to design and construct solar-powered microgrids at six California bakeries.

Despite their role in promoting sustainable development in the built environment, microgrids have traditionally been powered by fossil fuels — primarily natural gas. However, improved microgrid technology, along with a steady trend in cost reductions, are inspiring an increased adaptation of renewable energy sources for microgrids.

Today’s microgrids incorporate a more diverse assortment of largely clean and renewable energy, often combining a mix-and-match of rooftop solar panels, wind turbines, fuel cells and biomass-power heat with storage to provide maximum uptime for mission critical operations, according to a 2021 report by Guidehouse Insights.
