Smart Microgrids

Creating sustainable resiliency is now a necessity.

Abnormal is the new normal

The 2018 fire season changed everything. PG&E equipment started the Camp fire killing 86 people and destroying 14,000 homes. From now on, CA utilities can either: turn off the grid, or face potential criminal liability for future deaths. State utilities have already announced they plan to turn off the grid during windy days.

How long can you last without power?

PG&E, SCE, SDG&E and others will be shutting off the grid to prevent wildfires. CA PUC Code § 399.2 gives utilities the authority to shut off power in emergency situations whenever necessary to protect public safety, for as long and as often as needed. Customers with solar, without energy storage, will still be affected.   

Backup power that pays for itself!
