A Microgrid is a local on-site energy grid that can operate independently of the traditional energy grid making it more efficient and reliable. It can be powered by generators, batteries and renewable resources like solar, wind, biogas or biomass. Microgrids can be used to reduce operational expenses through energy peak shaving, energy demand reduction and the utilization of on-site renewable energy production. Along with the economic benefits Microgrids can also increase resiliency during long duration power outages and reduce carbon emissions by 50% or more.
