Otis Microgrid: Cape Cod Military Base To Run Fully On Renewable Energy

The US Department of Defense’s (DoD) first wind-powered microgrid is nearly ready at Otis Air National Guard Base on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Unveiled on August 29, 2018, by the 102nd Intelligence Wing and project partners, the “grid-connected microgrid” will serve as a model for similar Air National Guard and Department of Defense (DoD) projects. The Otis microgrid is expected to achieve several firsts in microgrid development for the military and New England.
