In the face of blackouts, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, and other natural disasters, customers experience first-hand the need to decouple their reliance on the utility companies, to protect against outages, and to ensure resiliency for homes and businesses. Microgrid energy systems are agnostic to whichever form of energy generation is most appropriate for the building. Diesel generators, inversely, have been described as a dirtier, less safe, and expensive solution.

Solar is not always the best solution for every customer. Each Microgrid must be custom tailored. Read more about the future of Microgrid technology, from a recent post by ICF, below.
Combined Heat and Power units (CHP) generate power on-site, using natural gas. Unlike normal generators, CHP and Fuel Cells provide a consistent and reliable flow of energy to buildings while emitting substantially less pollutants. CHP units are not affected by clouds or power outages, can be utilized to produce free heat for domestic and commercial use. Though avoiding transmission line inefficiencies, CHPs are generally are fifty percent more carbon friendly than the traditional utility power.
