Microgrids Are The Way To Go

The federal government and Sarnia National Laboratories have just invested $30 million in a Smart Power Infrastructure Demonstration for Energy Reliability and Security (SPIDERS) Microgrid Project.

This project is just a microcosm of what is to come if microgrids become a prevalent reality.

The SPIDERS project aims improve the military’s energy independence from the grid. Some 196 kW of renewable energy has already been added to the Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam base in Hawaii.

While initial costs to microgrids may be the main barrier to entry, ongoing cost-cutting through research and development will make the potential for microgrids huge in the future, and is definitely the way to go.
