There’s an energy solution that can power your facility during blackouts, lower your operating costs, and achieve sustainability goals. It’s called a microgrid — a local, independent energy grid that’s all your own.
A microgrid is capable of supplying energy even when the utility grid goes down due to extreme weather, equipment failure, or other causes. This capability is called “islanding,” in that the microgrid isolates itself from the utility grid and continues to generate electricity. Renewable microgrids are commonly powered by a combination of solar, battery storage, and a traditional backup generator that is synchronized and optimized by an energy management system.
Once the power grid is restored, the combination of solar and battery storage continues to mitigate your organization’s energy costs as well as manage environmental impact by reducing reliance on the utility.
