The DON is transforming its energy and water use by developing resilient energy resources to bolster reliable and efficient energy security measures. CEC grant programs, such as the Electric Program Investment Charge (EPIC), have provided more than $50 million in research and development funding to projects directly supporting Department of Defense military bases in the state.
Past and current joint projects between the DON and the CEC include powering critical DON facilities with micro-grids, renewable energy and battery storage that increases electric grid stability for both DON installations and their local communities. The DON is looking to address climate concerns by reducing greenhouse gas emissions by modernizing DON electrification infrastructure.
Earlier in the day, Berger met with U.S. Marine Corps and CEC energy representatives to discuss MCAS Miramar’s microgrid, battery storage, energy resilient projects, and electric vehicle infrastructure expansion. Prior to the MOU signing, DON and CEC leadership held a senior executive meeting to discuss energy challenges facing the state and potential future partnership efforts.
EI&E serves the DON and the nation by enhancing combat capabilities for the warfighter and providing greater energy security for DON installations. EI&E is charged with overseeing partnerships that will increase DON’s climate change resiliency and protection of the occupational health of the military and civilian personnel.
