We call our power system an electric “grid” because it is composed of a network of wires that move the power around from node to node – basically a combination of power sources (natural gas power plants, solar farms, nukes), wires (long distance transmission lines and local distribution utility poles) and controls. Microgrids are the same concept but on a much smaller scale.
Listen up to this week’s Energy Show to learn more about microgrids, and the importance they are playing in the changing landscape of central and distributed energy.
