Energy Storage, EV Charging Save Museum $3,200 Per Year
The City of Lancaster, Calif., has hired Green Charge Networks to install an energy storage system and electric vehicle charging station at the Lancaster Museum of Art & History (MOAH). The project is funded by a California Energy Commission (CEC) grant at no cost to the City and will generate about $3,200 annually in cost savings.
The electric vehicle (EV) charging station – specifically, a Nissan DC fast charger – features rapid charging, which can charge compatible electric vehicles to 80 percent capacity in about 20 minutes. The charging station, to be located in MOAH’s rear parking lot, will be available for use by the public.
The energy storage system and EV charging station will be installed in April.
Solar-generated power is now required in new homes in the City of Lancaster, as it targets a goal of becoming a solar-power hub.
