Wind Microgeneration Strategy for Meeting California’s Carbon Neutral Grid Goal

As California’s Renewables Portfolio Standard continues to phase power production from fossil fuels, carbon neutral sources will need to be implemented. This sets small-scale wind production and battery storage in a position to integrate into current grid infrastructure as means of production. This would be an “E Pluribus Unum” approach where many decentralized small production and storage units would act in combination to provide a stable grid. This is often referred to as distributed generation (DG). By distributing the grid’s production in this manner and designating predetermined regional hubs for control (in the event of a fractured grid due to natural disaster), the state and its residents will be able to maintain power for critical infrastructure and basic utilities. This work presents, in detail, a sustainable plan for achieving carbon neutral Californian grid by 2045.
