At Scale, we're building the electric grid of the future - one that is clean, decentralized, reliable and resilient. We work with clients in the food industry to build state-of-the-art individual energy systems known as microgrids. We design these microgrids to create value for our clients while supporting the macro-grid with demand response and frequency regulation to grid operators and utilities. Collectively our projects will form the backbone of the 21st century electric grid, and we will aggregate services from individual projects to form what are known as virtual power plants. We are a team of energy and financing experts who bring a deep understanding of the sector to our work. Our development team has been working together for decades, designing and implementing multi-resource microgrids for the commercial, industrial, and municipal sectors. Our projects commonly integrate solar, storage, and dispatchable generation with microgrid controls, and we wrap this solution in a financing package similar to a Power Purchase Agreement. Our clients include Morgan Stanley, the US Air Force, Gallaudet University, and American Water.

Water trading and banking are important tools that can help California bring its groundwater basins into balance by the early 2040s, as mandated by the 2014 Sustainable Water Management Act (SGMA). But the expansion of the state’s water market still faces some bottlenecks, including aging infrastructure and complex regulations. The stakes for preserving California’s groundwater are rising, however, as is interest in improving the state’s water market.
