ReJoule is working on the project with CleanSpark, Ford Motor Co., BigBattery and GRID Alternatives.
The California Energy Commission Grant proposal was for "Validating Capability of Second-life Batteries to Cost-Effectively Integrate Solar Power for Small-Medium Commercial Building Applications." According to the CEC, the underlying goal is to deploy second life batteries for electric vehicles for use in a microgrid application.
ReJoule and CleanSpark will be further supported by Ford Motor, BigBattery and GRID Alternatives.
CleanSpark said it expects to receive around $470,000 from the funding for its microgrid design and mVSO software services and follow-on deployment of its mPulse software and controls. CleanSpark has also agreed to provide over $88,000 in matching funding.
