Otis Air National Guard Base
East Penn Manufacturing’s wholly-owned subsidiary Ecoult is supplying energy storage technology to Raytheon for use in a new Microgrid project. This project, along with other future developments, has the potential to significantly enhance our Nation’s energy security with sustainable backup power systems. The Microgrid is being used by the U.S. Department of Defense at the Otis Air National Guard Base on Cape Cod. The Base will rely on the Microgrid to provide reliable and secure power to its critical military infrastructure.
This will be the first wind-powered Microgrid in the US Department of Defense and the the first US Military Facility cyber-secure connection to an Independent System Operator allowing returning revenue with the target of a 5-year simple payback.
