Arista Power Inc. has been awarded a $909,000 U.S. Army contract to complete phase two development of the Intelligent Scalable Micro-Grid.

The grid will integrate renewable and traditional energy sources to provide power in remote operations where military operations are taking place, as well as minimize the use of fossil fuels, officials said.

The Rochester firm has completed phase one of the program. In the first phase, Arista Power delivered the initial intelligent micro-grid to the Army and this month demonstrated the system at the Pentagon Energy Security Event.
