True energy independence
The ultimate Distributed Energy Resource, microgrids must consider and integrate many factors into a seamless cohesive unit that may not even be connected to the grid at large. Microgrids provide true electricity independence and renders the power grid redundant.
Resiliency you can depend on
Even far-away events can cause traditional customers to be without the power they depend on whereas microgrids are inherently more reliable. Typical distruptions include: *Wind *Ice *Wildfire *Public Safety Power Shutoffs
By causing less strain on the grid and alleviating congestion, investments by grid operators can also be deferred or eliminated. This contains electricity prices for everyone.
