A funny thing happened on the way to creating a more resilient grid in the United States. Rather than promoting technologies that actually do this – like microgrids – the Department of Energy (DOE) is pushing old-style generators that are part of the problem.
Many growers are most concerned about securing sufficient power for expanding operations, meaning grid upgrades can be necessary if efficiency and demand-side options are overlooked.
Interest is rising in the clean energy microgrid, especially within healthcare, higher education, government and business.
