A microgrid co-locates electricity generation and consumption. Unlike the utility grid, which generates electricity in a centralized power plant and then distributes it along miles of transmission lines, a microgrid generates electricity on-site. For electricity generation, our microgrids typically standalone systems that use Solar PV, Battery Energy Storage Systems, and a paralleling Diesel or LPG Generator. Intelligent software controls automatically control generation sources based on load and available capacity. Microgrids can be connected and parallel with the utility if desired and allowed by the utility.
