US Army executes lease with Bright Canyon Energy for microgrid energy resilience project

The Army executed a 30-year lease with Bright Canyon Energy (BCE) for a privately funded, owned and operated energy resilience project on approximately 100 acres at Joint Forces Training Base – Los Alamitos (JFTB-LA), CA. Construction is expected to begin this summer.

The project will provide power to JFTB-LA critical missions for at least 14 days in the event of a grid emergency and also benefit the local community. The project is a collaboration among the U.S. Army Office of Energy Initiatives, JFTB-LA, California National Guard, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and BCE, and will generate 26 megawatts (MW) of solar photovoltaics, and include a 20MW/40 MWh battery energy storage system, and 3 MW of backup generators.
