Microgrids are becoming an increasingly important tool for commercial and industrial enterprises. By generating and storing power on-site, organizations are becoming more efficient, resilient, and self-reliant, making them better able to withstand the impacts of volatile energy costs and frequent grid outages.

Until now, microgrid design and deployment has been resource-intensive, limiting access primarily to large enterprises. Each microgrid was largely custom-engineered and incorporated different software, hardware, and interface systems to meet the unique specifications for each build.

In this webinar you will learn the results you can achieve such as improved resilience, energy cost optimization and sustainability. This webinar is for contractors, system integrators and partners who are ready to take their business to the next level by offering a microgrid solution for their customers.
