In our present day and age, all of us increasingly rely on resilient, uninterrupted, and affordable energy that we can control. At Hannah Solar Government Services, we call that Energy Security. One of the ways we provide Energy Security for our clients is by designing and building microgrids.
What is a microgrid?
A microgrid is a system of interconnected loads served by dedicated generation sources with control capabilities. The system can isolate itself from the traditional grid to operate autonomously.
What do microgrids do?
While microgrids generally operate while connected to the main power grid, they have the capability to operate completely on their own. Therefore they give their loads the ability to continuously operate regardless of unanticipated energy disruptions.
REDUCE ENERGY COSTS
Microgrids can provide energy savings to users in a couple different ways:
Who benefits from microgrids?
THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT
The federal government, particularly the military, already recognizes the need to secure critical loads with microgrids for the sake of national defense while also reducing costs for the taxpayer.
Utilities have always been concerned with providing reliable and secure power to their customers. Microgrids are another tool in utilities' tool belts to serve customers with critical loads.
As microgrids continue to become more cost effective they are an increasingly attractive investment for private entities with large power demands.
