What is a Microgrid?

A Microgrid is a localized grid with its own power generation resources, its own loads, and definable boundaries.It acts as a single controllable entity with key features such as localized power, defined boundaries, and single control installation. A Microgrid can also either operate independently of the utility or can work in conjunction with a utility.

What are the benefits of a microgrid?

There are many benefits to a microgrid system. A microgrid can offer increased system resiliency through the combination of multiple energy sources to provide redundancy in the event that one source is not available.  A microgrid can provide power to remote locations.  A microgrid can provide power from a simple system like a diesel generator set to a hybrid system consisting of solar, energy storage, and a back-up generator set.  A microgrid can also be designed to provide energy from the most cost-effective power source.
