Across the United States, cities and facilities with mission-critical energy requirements have begun a paramount shift from centralized energy generation to local, renewable, and flexible distributed energy resources. Distributed energy concepts like microgrids have become viable and sustainable energy strategies thanks to major technological advancements, rapidly falling equipment prices and an evolving regulatory environment. But navigating local utility requirements for microgrids remain difficult to navigate.

Compounding this, extreme weather events like Hurricanes Sandy, Harvey, Irma and Maria have made clear the risks to critical facilities and infrastructure inherent in traditional energy distribution systems. Microgrids present a reliable, resilient, and cost-effective alternative for major energy users.

Microgrids represent a relatively new concept that requires adapting existing frameworks. Because of that, projects must involve careful coordination Commissioning an interconnected system should be conducted hand-in-hand with the utility, testing feeders and scheduling shutdowns.
