What is Microgrid

THE ENERGY LANDSCAPE IS CONTINUOSLY CHANGING AND MICROGRIDS FORM A BIG PART OF THAT FUTURE.

A microgrid can be defined as an independent power network that uses local, distributed energy resources to provide grid backup or off-grid power”. The “micro” part of the equation means simply that it is “smaller than the utility-scale grid.” It could be anything from a single building to an island, residential suburb or off grid communities. To be a microgrid, a system must generate electricity via a combination of fossil fuels (ESKOM) and renewable resources, including diesel generators, wind turbines, solar photovoltaic (PV) panels, hydro, geothermal, etc. [Adapted from Microgridnews.com]
