What is a Microgrid?

The term “microgrid” is used in two senses – as a technical term describing an energy “islanding” capability, whereby a campus or grouping of buildings, has the ability to operate independently from the electrical grid and other centralized power sources, if necessary. Typically microgrid’s are utilized for military bases, hospitals, or other groupings of buildings that involve critical power loads. Microgrid Solar offers services to design and construct microgrids, in this sense of the term, through our parent company, Microgrid Energy.

The other use of “microgrid” is the more loose sense, signifying the general shift to greater independence from the grid through increased efficiency and onsite power generation. Our company understands what we do to be a part of a paradigm shift, moving from a centralized, fossil fuel-based system of power generation, to a more decentralized, clean fuel-based system. Microgrid Solar takes our name from this broader meaning of “microgrid”.
