Our Expertise

We recently completed feasibility studies for advanced microgrid projects for Southampton, Greenport, and Port Jefferson, New York. They were supported by funding from the New York Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA). Global Common was also recently selected to receive $1.0 million in support from NYSERDA to design and develop a microgrid in Freeport, New York, as part of the NY Prize Competition.

We also develop on-site energy systems for commercial and industrial establishments that include cogeneration, batteries, energy efficiency measures, solar photovoltaics (PVs), and other measures. Global Common is currently developing a 5-MW utility-scale fuel cell project that will sell energy to PSEG/LI.

Global Common previously developed a 54-MW kerosene-fueled peaking plant in Greenport, New York, an anaerobic digester/cogeneration project in Cayuga County, New York, two 12.5-MW biomass power plants in California, and a 150-ton per year wood pellet plant in Georgia.

Port Jefferson

Global Common defined the scope of the microgrid to encompass the critical facilities and other commercial establishments important to the community that could be cost-effectively included

Facilities will be connected using portions of the existing PSEG Long Island (PSEG-LI) above ground feeders that will be hardened in areas where there is the risk of tree damage.

About Microgrids

My first experience with microgrids came after Hurricane Sandy. Our house lost power during the storm, but I was lucky to be able to buy a new 7,500-watt gasoline-fueled generator at Home Depot
