A microgrid is a localized energy grid that has the ability to control the energy that is being produced. A microgrid can connect AND disconnect from macrogrid. This means a solar array paired with a microgrid has the ability to "go off grid". By including a microgrid with your solar array system you will have the capability to produce and control your own energy during a power outage. Microgrids work with different sources of energy including renewable sources like solar arrays, generators, or batteries. Adding a microgrid to your solar array system is a great way to reach energy independence!
