Commercial microgrids are local energy grids with the ability to operate autonomously from the grid. Commercial facilities like industrial warehouses & distribution centers, office buildings, multifamily buildings and retail shops & restaurants can leverage the many microgrids offer. These include increased electric reliability & resilience, lower energy costs, a stronger central grid, increased cyber security, emergency backup power and lower carbon emissions.
