Micro-grid Power Plants

Solar is good. Solar Micro-grids are Better. It’s a surprise to many when they learn that their grid-connected solar panels can not keep the lights on during a power outage.

This was a lesson the Northeast US learned the hard way during Sandy, the 2012 superstorm that knocked out power to 8 million people. Two weeks or more without electricity, solar panel owners were venting to the media. Few realized that absent a battery and advanced inverter, their solar homes would go dark.

Four years later, the misunderstanding persists. Homeowners, communities and businesses still install solar panels — sometimes making large capital investments — under the false presumption that solar will keep the lights on when the grid fails.
