EnTech Solutions unveils energy microgrid at Boys & Girls Clubs

The grid is located at the James A. Lane Club in Huntsville

The solar panels generate the electricity that powers the microgrid.

EnTech Solutions has installed a clean energy microgrid at the James A. Lane Club in Huntsville, the largest of The Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama locations in its four-county area. The organization serves 4,300 youths in 15 locations.

EnTech Solutions designed, built and installed the Xcape microgrid, which will provide the BGCNAL with clean, renewable energy generated from solar panels.

The Xcape microgrid includes batteries to store energy for use on overcast or cloudy days.

The microgrid acts as an onsite energy source independent of the utility grid and will draw power from an 18-kilowatt solar system, storing the excess energy in a battery for use when the sun isn’t shining. It will produce 28,000 kilowatt-hours annually and can reduce energy costs by up to $3,100 annually.

“EnTech Solutions is thrilled to provide a clean energy microgrid to the Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama to support the important work they do in our communities,” said Scott Romenesko, president of EnTech Solutions. The microgrid was installed in partnership with Holder Construction and Meta.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of North Alabama provides tutoring, academic opportunities, life skills and career development, mentors, sports, arts and crafts, field trips and more for youth in their communities. They partner with people and organizations within communities to provide life skills for area youth.
