Micro Grids powered by renewable energy sources are the ideal solution to bring resilient energy access to communities and businesses throughout the country. Furthermore, economic incentives such as the Investment Tax Credit, the Production Tax Credit, feed-in tariffs, net metering, and state renewable portfolio standards can successfully bring renewable energy generation online.
A Micro Grid is merely a smaller scale version of the larger electrical grid that powers our country. The electrical grid exists to supply our electricity demand, connecting electrical supply to electrical demand with the transmission and distribution system. Microgrids work in the same way, just for a smaller geographic area, like a couple of buildings or a local community. To meet the electricity demands of its users, a Micro Grid must have a generation source. Traditionally, the electricity supplied to Micro Grids has historically been from “behind the meter” fossil fuel generators – gas-powered generators, for example. However, with the rapid advancement in renewable energy technologies, today’s Microgrids are being designed to supply electricity with a combination of various renewable generation sources. When paired with versatile energy storage solutions, the combined generation sources can form an islanded system that detaches from the electrical grid. At Brevian Energy, we are committed to fighting the effects of climate change. Our mission is to bring affordable, reliable, renewable power to homes, businesses, and communities in every possible location.
