Sage Energy Consulting will partner with the Judicial Council of California (JCC) on an investment in solar energy and energy storage.
The JCC plans to install rooftop solar panels, solar carports and batteries at 43 potential sites to enable the courthouses to generate enough solar energy to cover some of their routine energy needs.
Sage will evaluate the 43 sites already identified and provide support with purchase, pre-construction, construction and post-construction management and commissioning. Electricity purchase agreements can be negotiated to fix the price of the resulting solar and energy resilience services.
As part of the work, Sage will explore the best ways for the Judicial Council to keep critical services running, even if the power goes down.
The Judicial Council provides leadership and administration to the California justice system, with the goal of improving the quality of justice on behalf of the public.
“We expect more judicial districts and other public facilities to follow in California and other places that are particularly vulnerable to power outages, such as the U.S. Southwest, Hawaii, Long Island and the coast of Maine,” said Russell Schmit, Chief Operating Officer from Sage.
