What is a Microgrid?

The term “microgrid” is used in two senses – as a technical term describing an energy “islanding” capability, and to signify the general shift to to greater independence from the grid through increased efficiency and onsite power generation.

In the broader sense, our company believes that what we do is a part of a paradigm shift, moving from centralized, fossil fuel-based system of power generation, to a more decentralized, clean fuel-based system. Microgrid Solar takes our name from this broader meaning of “microgrid”.
