  • Water system: Well
  • Electrical loads: guest accommodations, restaurant/shop, office and laundry facilities, well/water pumps and fire suppression systems
  • Large Pool and spa area with rest/changing room facilities
  • Individual private guest sites scattered over a large area
BAM Installed:
  • 54kW, 208VAC three phase electrical microgrid easily expandable to 96kW
  • 9kW completely electrically isolated Nano-grid expandable to 18kW + dedicated DC microgrid control power 
  • 130kWh Battery Energy Storage System 
  • Fully integrated Main Service Panel with remote controlled feeds to all subpanels
  • Full function thermal grid integration with thermal storage
  • Critical controls and networking infrastructure
Thermal-grid supports:
  • All Domestic Hot Water needs including commercial laundry facilities and guest accommodations
  • Pool and spa heating
On-site energy production systems:
  • 30kW solar PV array
  • 30kW Capstone turbine CHP system provides both electrical and thermal energy
  • 30kW diesel emergency back-up generator 
  • High-efficiency propane boiler
System highlights:
  • Always on, “blinkless” power ensures continuity of operations and guests are never inconvenienced.
  • BAM’s controls automatically switch electrical production as needed; no manual intervention required.
  • Remote monitoring and control capabilities ensure uptime and reduce mean time to repair should there be a problem.
  • In the event of a catastrophic failure the BAM system is fully by passable with a manual “Frankenstein” switch to transfer all loads to the diesel emergency back-up generator.
  • Full remote monitoring and control with limited remote serviceability means more uptime, less mean time to repair. Includes a full suite of usage data, both real time and historical, available anywhere anytime with your connected device.
  • Manual bypass to full generator support via” Frankenstein” switch in the event of an emergency.
  • System supplies 240/120VAC split phase and 480VAC three phase power
  • Built-in N+1 inverter bank redundancy. If an inverter were to fail, there would be no degradation of service. The system would merely alert us to the problem so the errant inverter can be replaced when it is convenient. BAM’s™ Inverters are plug n’ play, hot swappable so even trained on-site personnel can easily perform the replacement with no interruption of service at all.
