Benefits of Community Microgrids

Benefits of Community Microgrids

However they are defined, everyone agrees community microgrids provide benefits. Centralized utility systems and aboveground distribution lines expose customers to regional and local outages, “and while they are highly reliable, centralized utility grids can’t ensure local resilience,” notes Peter Douglass, project manager for the Microgrid Institute, a collaborative organization supporting global development of microgrids and distributed energy
