Microgrids New Potential

Microgrids S&C Electric

In recent years, new technologies have also come to market. These new technologies allow modern “smart” microgrids to provide benefits exceeding those of their predecessors, and are spurring renewed interest in microgrid development. As renewable energy becomes more reliable and the capacity of new battery-based stored energy systems increases, microgrids are now viewed as a viable way to meet demand when production of intermittent renewable sources like wind and solar energy is low.
