What Is a Microgrid?
A microgrid is an independently controlled energy system that distributes multiple sources of power to multiple sources of use, allowing you to power your home or business with clean, renewable energy— with or without connection to the main electric grid.
Microgrids can either be grid-connected—with the ability to disconnect completely from the main electric grid when it’s down–or operate entirely on their own. Six Rivers Solar designs microgrids with and without main grid connection.
What Is a Solar Microgrid?
Microgrids can utilize multiple sources of power, but solar microgrids primarily utilize solar power. They incorporate solar panels, solar inverters, solar batteries, wires, and cables to produce, store, and distribute electricity. Power is generated and stored within a central hub and wires are installed to distribute it to various locations within its network.
Solar microgrids can be used to power one or multiple homes, businesses, or farms—depending on the size of the system and the proximity of the users.
