Los Alamos County is moving ahead in an agreement with a Japanese firm to test alternative energy systems.
One of the items on Tuesday night’s agenda was the Memorandum of Understanding with the New Energy and Technology Development Organization of Japan (NEDO). “In this proposed project, NEDO will construct a 1 megawatt photovoltaic (PV) plant and a 1 megawatt (MW), 7 MWh (megawatt hours) sodium sulfur battery on the county’s closed landfill, provide an energy management system or EMS to manage those resources and will equip a typical Los Alamos home with the latest in Japanese energy management technology and appliances,” according to county documents.
“NEDO will also provide approximately 100 smart electric meters to be placed in the county’s system. The county’s part of the project will be to provide another 1 MW of PV generation, provide a house to be used as the smart house, provide smart switches on the demonstration circuit and install the smart meters in the county’s system,” the documents further state.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Department of Public Utilities Director John Arrowsmith spoke briefly with council regarding the MOU.
