Storage & Microgrids

Develop. Own. Sustain.

About

One of the main goals of Citizens Energy’s transition into renewables is to foster sustainable communities as modern society scrambles to face the impacts of climate change.

To further promote resiliency, Citizens Energy Corporation introduced Citizens Storage & Microgrids to develop innovative projects that reduce our reliance on fossil fuels by increasing communities’ capacities to meet peak energy demands with green power, while hardening and strengthening the grid.

Citizens Energy is actively developing storage and microgrid projects across multiple states. Our microgrid developments are designed to integrate distributed energy resources with distribution to operate in parallel with the electric grid or in an island mode.

Citizens’ energy storage units will serve to reduce peak energy demand to decrease electricity costs. The projects will aid critical community facilities like schools, hospitals and emergency response centers in becoming self-sufficient in times of crisis.
