What is a microgrid?
A microgrid is a group of interconnected loads and distributed energy resources that acts as a single controllable entity with respect to the grid. It can connect and disconnect from the grid to operate in grid-connected or island mode. Microgrids can improve customer reliability and resilience to grid disturbances.
Clean microgrids, employing solar and battery storage technologies, offer a sustainable alternative to conventional diesel generators. These microgrids can function continuously, 24/7, and serve as a reliable source of clean backup electricity, particularly during power outages and extreme weather events like heatwaves, wildfires, and other climate-related disasters that have become more frequent in California.
