First-ever smart-charging micro grid unveiled
WHEELER ARMY AIRFIELD, Hawaii - In efforts to provide a clean source of "green" power and control nearly any source of electrical power within an existing grid, Col. Douglas Mulbury, commander, U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii, hosted a formal maile lei untying and demonstration of the Army's first-ever smart-charging micro grid, Friday, outside the garrison headquarters, here.

"This prototype underscores our stated goal to become the Army benchmark for environmental stewardship," Mulbury said.

The Smart-Charging Micro Grid, or SCMG, system consists of 25 kilowatts of solar power array, 200 kilowatt-hours of battery storage and four plug-in electric vehicles. The system powers four electric vehicles and has the ability to provide instant backup power to support three buildings for 72 hours, including the garrison headquarters.
