Microgrids Set to Become a One Billion Dollar Business in the U.S.A. by 2020
One elegant solution to provide reliable and low-cost electricity to commercial buildings, campuses, and communities, is via the use of microgrids which employ some amount of renewable energy in their power generation.
Microgrids can either be connected to the regional electrical grid, or they can operate in ‘island mode’ as a standalone power generator.
Smart microgrids are connected to the regional electrical grid but can operate independently, serving up electricity from the cheapest source on a minute-by-minute basis.
Due to rapidly advancing technologies, smart microgrids can now offer cost-effective, reliable electricity 24/7/365 by combining the strengths of the regional power grid with the strengths of the microgrid, for unlimited, reliable, clean power.
Microgrid spokespersons report that microgrids in the United States are set to become a one billion dollar business by 2020.
Corporations related to that burgeoning industry are now forming-up to efficiently handle the expected microgrid demand.
