Both Regatta Solutions and Agave Systems are mentioned in the 2019 report called “A Comprehensive Assessment of Small Combined Heat and Power Technical and Market Potential in California”. The report was compiled from a study that identified, characterized, and assessed combined heat and power (CHP) technologies and applications in California. This assessment found economically viable applications, including the systems and platforms supplied by Regatta Solutions and Agave Systems. Many of the case studies used for the report are Regatta installed clients. Out of these clients, many are using Agave Systems for their energy management and utility bill management.
Regatta Solutions has helped businesses overcome the challenges of unreliable utility power for over a decade now. Several of our clients in the San Diego area are currently benefiting from their power generation projects while SDG&E has power shut down in their area. A Dual Mode power generation project is able to operate even when the grid is not operating. The controls that Regatta Solutions designs for our clients automatically disconnect the power supply from the grid when it becomes unstable or unavailable and then automatically reconnects and operates in Grid Parallel mode when SDG&E comes back online. These projects save millions of dollars for our clients over the life of the project and we even provide financing. The cost of financing is included in our economic models and the actual value of the project is measured by Agave System’s Evolution software so that CFO’s and management can see how their investment is paying off over lifetime and real time. Ask us how a project for your facility would pay off.
Agave® Systems is proud to have been a sponsor of the Homer Micro Grid Conference in San Diego October 8th and 9th.
The team had the opportunity to present the Evolution™ SaaS Platform, which connects real time utility rate data with real time energy usage allowing users to optimize their distributed power assets. Participants had the opportunity to see how Evolution™ bridges the chasm between operations and finance, showing how asset management and performance relate directly to managing energy costs. Attendees were impressed with its open system architecture that enables Evolution™ to be used independently or combined with existing SCADA and/or plant control systems. Additionally the platform features microgrid controls to seamlessly integrate operation of solar, cogeneration and energy storage systems which made it a stand out at the conference. “ We appreciated ForesterMedia for providing us the platform to demonstrate that Evolution™ provides enterprise users the best framework to manage and optimize energy spend by delivering active data to make decisions now.” Steven Acevedo, CEO Founder Agave Systems.

Andrea Marr, VP of Energy Solutions at Regatta Solutions spoke on April 23rd at the 2017 San Francisco Green Film Festival following the West Coast premiere of Tidewater, a film by Roger Sorkin.
Andrea discussed ways in which communities and businesses can “go green” and be more resilient against the affects of climate change, including on site power generation and emergency preparedness planning. She also spoke about how to put a price on resiliency and about climate change as a national security issue.
The power generation grid is evolving from a one-way delivery system to a multi-directional network using smaller “virtual power plants,” where many locations work together to function of a traditional power plant, are an example of the types of projects that would reshape the grid.
The Regatta Solutions team along with a number of Clients met with California Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian this last Friday at Capstone Turbine’s facility. Leading the meeting was Capstone’s CEO Darren Jaminson. We all were there to collectively support the legislative efforts of Assmblyman Nazarian with Assembly Bill 36 (AB36).
AB 36 is critical to furthering California’s pursuit of a clean energy future and ensuring that all advanced distributed generation (DG) technologies capable of meeting the state’s stringent environmental standards are allowed to compete on a level playing field.

This coalition is highly supportive of public policies that promote clean energy and technological innovation and we are committed to assisting California in the pursuit of its ambitious clean energy goals. California’s overall energy demand is expected to double by 2050 concurrent with substantial increases in renewable energy penetration. This rapid growth reinforces the importance of deploying affordable, innovative and clean energy generation technologies capable of facilitating renewables integration while maintaining reliability. The DG technologies that Capstone Turbine manufactures provide affordable, clean, and resilient onsite power on par with the highest performing fuel cells on the market and may be particularly valuable in California, where energy costs are extremely high. We are part of the broader clean energy solution and are ready to be deployed now to meet the state’s growing demand while providing critical environmental, economic and social benefits.
CHATSWORTH, Calif., Nov. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Capstone Turbine Corporation (www.capstoneturbine.com) (Nasdaq:CPST), the world’s leading clean technology manufacturer of microturbine energy systems, announced today that its California distributor received an order for a C800 Signature Series microturbine to upgrade a large pharmaceutical company in Northern California.
Regatta Solutions, Capstone’s distributor in California, secured the order, which is expected to be commissioned in December 2016. The customer selected Capstone microturbines over reciprocating engines due to their ability to provide 24/7 secure power while also meeting strict Bay Area Air Quality Management District (BAAQMD) Best Available Control Technology (BACT) emissions levels, which allow the system to operate continuously and not just as a backup power source.
The natural gas-fueled C800S microturbine will be installed in dual mode to provide both prime and secure back up power for the facility.
