In a LinkedIn post by Dave Canny, Vice President, North Coast Region, “What an awesome afternoon at the Pepperwood Preserve in beautiful Sonoma County, celebrating the commissioning of California and Pacific Gas and Electric Company’s first 100% renewable remote grid, allowing for the removal of nearly 3/4s of a mile of overhead conductor in #highfireriskarea. A partnership with the Pepperwood Foundation, Sonoma Clean Power, working with BoxPower and Franklin Energy.
Fantastic demonstration of breakthrough thinking and partnership serving our #hometowns. With Joe Bentley, Geof Syphers, Angelo Campus, Lisa Micheli, and Simon Baker. As Angelo reminded us, the roots of PG&E go back to John Martin and Eugene de Sabia, Jr building one of California’s first hydroelectric plants…in its own way a renewable remote grid! #fullcircle.”
