SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleanspark, LLC, as part of Stratean (OTC: SRTN), the developer of a patented and revolutionary "stratified" downdraft gasifier, today announced the company has completed Phase I of its first commercial microgrid in partnership with Webcor, a San Francisco-based builder, and Sungevity, a leading solar service provider.
The 832kW solar system with distributed controls, located at the Ram's Hill Golf Course in Borrego Springs, features a highly advanced monitoring intelligence platform. In addition an upgrade to consolidate property loads for a private behind-the-meter 12kV infrastructure was deployed that enables plug and play capabilities in the future such as energy storage integration and additional microgrid functionality. The Rams Hill installation was completed in five months and is expected to save approximately $300,000 per year with an eight-year return on investment from the project. With the intelligence platform already delivering cost savings information, that return is expected to drop further in the coming six months.
"The system installed by the microgrid team has performed beyond our expectations. We are very happy with our partnership with Webcor and CleanSpark and look forward to the continuing development of our power system," said Becky Holeman, CFO of Rams Hill.
Matthew Schultz, Chief Executive Officer of Stratean, Inc., commented, "We are excited about completing the first phase of this project. Sungevity and Webcor are phenomenal partners. We believe the ROI is extremely compelling for our customers not only as a result of solar energy generation, but also due to our superior intelligence platform that will deliver significant value on its own. We look forward to communicating future projects and developments in the near term."
CleanSpark offers advanced energy software and control technology that enables a plug-and-play enterprise solution to modern energy challenges. By integrating new and existing energy generation and storage assets with advanced load management capacities, CleanSpark's software allows energy generated locally to be shared with other interconnected microgrids. This unique capability enables microgrids to be scaled and widely adopted for commercial, industrial, military, municipal, and remote community deployment.
