Scale’s Rapid Response Modular Microgrid (R2M2) proven to help
businesses and communities maintain electricity during sustained outages

Scale Microgrid Solutions today launched its Rapid Response Modular
Microgrid (R2M2) platform aimed at helping communities and businesses in
California mitigate the impact of power grid disruptions such as the
Public Safety Power Shutoffs planned by utilities during the upcoming
wildfire season. The R2M2 platform is a modular and scalable microgrid
designed to deliver resilience and sustainable, affordable power to
municipalities, public safety, commercial and industrial facilities that
are at high risk of power loss.

“California’s electric grid is responsible for igniting several of the
catastrophic wildfires that have devastated the state over the last
several years,” said Ryan Goodman, Scale Microgrid Solutions’ CEO.
“There are a variety of measures grid operators are considering to
reduce risk and avoid reoccurrence, including the need for utilities to
de-energize the grid on a fairly regular basis for the foreseeable
future. De-energization, while necessary, unfortunately causes
significant life safety and economic consequences. Our R2M2 system is
designed to mitigate these risks.”

The national cost of sustained power outages is estimated to be $59
billion annually, according to the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineers, with 70 percent of the costs borne by commercial
customers and 28 percent by industrial customers. The R2M2 platform,
developed leveraging Schneider Electric technology, addresses the
specific business continuity needs of these ratepayers by providing
critical backup power to eliminate lost revenue caused by grid outages.

The system utilizes a combination of distributed generation technologies
housed behind the customer’s utility meter to satisfy a portion of the
customer’s electricity demand during normal operating conditions. In the
event of a grid disruption or shutoff, the system converts to
“island-mode” enabling facilities to continue operations. Reliable
backup power is especially important to California’s communities and
businesses that could see Public Safety Power Shutoffs last up to five
days at a time during wildfire season.

“We are excited to have the opportunity to fund this innovative offering
from Scale Microgrid Solutions—it is the right product at the right time
that is solving a vital business need, especially for the California
market,” said Jigar Shah, President, Generate Capital.

Goodman said the R2M2 platform has been fully engineered and piloted,
allowing it to be deployed in just nine months instead of the two to
three years for the average microgrid deployment cycle. Additionally, he
said, “the Scale team has worked with Generate Capital to develop
attractive Energy-as-a-Service financing options that will alleviate the
capital burden for end-use customers.”

The R2M2 is available now for customers nationwide. “Not only can the
R2M2 platform help California’s businesses mitigate the impact of power
shutoffs during wildfire season, but the platform also can help any
business that is at risk from power outages due to hurricanes,
earthquakes, ice storms, and other extreme events,” Goodman said.

The launch of the R2M2 builds on Scale Microgrid Solutions’ innovative
microgrid offering to commercial and industrial companies, such as Bowery
. For more information about the R2M2, please visit www.scalemicrogridsolutions.com.
