Alcatraz Microgrid Tour (in partnership with Intersolar North America)

  • Intercontinental Hotel Lobby 888 Howard Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)


Visit one of the largest solar microgrids in the United States and learn about how the photovoltaics, diesel generators, and battery storage work together to provide power for this infamous Federal Penitentiary turned National Park. Participants will go behind the scenes to see the various system components and talk to National Park Service staff about the origins of the project and how it has been performing. We will provide snacks on the bus ride to the Alcatraz ferry terminal, and you may purchase additional lunch items in the café on the ferry boat.
