Among his achievements, California Gov. Jerry Brown signed into law a microgrid bill (SB 1339-Stern) in September 2018 that is expected to boost project development in the state and perhaps nationally. The bill has won high praise from microgrid players because it opens the door to utility microgrid tariffs that are expected to create greater cost certainty, making projects easier to finance. The bill also is designed to create more predictable timing for interconnection of microgrids to the central grid.
