Microgrids Ensure a Resilient Future

Policy
Renewable Energy
As natural disasters become more common and destructive, the electric grid will continue to fail and power outages will become a frequent occurrence. Installing microgrids can strengthen the grid at large and prevent power interruptions. Find out about how microgrids distribute energy resources and are able to be both be grid-tied and break from the main grid in times of crisis.

Allocating funds to disaster recovery means taking them away from other areas essential for growth. NOAA calculated that for 2017 and 2018, productive growth investments lost $400 billion because of what was instead used to respond to climate-related disaster.
