Arista Power to develop microgrid for U.S. Army

Rochester, N.Y., January 17, 2012 — Arista Power, Inc., a manufacturer, designer and integrator of renewable energy generation, management and distribution systems, won a $922,000 U.S. Army contract to be the prime contractor to complete Phase One activities for the development of a new Intelligent Micro-Grid.

The Intelligent Micro-Grid will be designed to seamlessly integrate both renewable and traditional energy sources to provide the scalability and automatic operation needed to deliver highly reliable power in areas where military operations are taking place across a broad spectrum of energy requirements and applications with a goal of minimizing the use of fossil fuels and saving lives by reducing the need to transport diesel fuel.

Arista Power will develop the Intelligent Micro-Grid for the Renewable Energy for Distributed Under-Supplied Command Environments (REDUCE) program under the guidance of the U.S. Army Communications-Electronics Research, Development and Engineering Center (CERDEC).

Under Phase One of the REDUCE program, Arista Power will deliver a demonstration of the system in about 3 to 6 months at CERDEC. The program has a Phase Two option for CERDEC to provide additional funding for continued development upon the successful completion of Phase One.
