Miramar Microgrid - Flight Line Resilience through Landfill Gas and Energy Storage
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
This project will install a permanent microgrid at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. It will incorporate five distributed energy resources: landfill gas, solar PV, battery energy storage, and electric vehicles. When operational, the microgrid will help maintain critical flight line facilities during grid outages and facilitate higher renewable generation from landfill gas generators.

Categorical Exemption
Type, Section or Code

Reasons for Exemption
The project will develop microgrid components as phase 2 of a larger microgrid demonstration on the grounds of Marine Corps Air Station in Miramar. Micrgrid components funded by this agreement are a battery energy storage system and controls to integrate and operate the microgrid. These components will be integrated with existing components installed previously during phase 1, which include a solar PV system, 18 electric vehicle charging stations, and controls to integrate existing renewable landfill gas power generators. The battery energy storage system and power plant for the microgrid currently reside. Minor trenching will occur to accommodate an electrical conduit run of approx 20 ft. The control system will be installed inside an existing building and will not involve physical construction. No other physical alterations to buildings or land will be made to accommodate the battery energy storage system or the control system.
