Microgrids

Utilities, communities, and energy consumers are actively investigating microgrids as a solution for reaching sustainability, resiliency, and cost-certainty objectives. Microgrids support greater levels of intermittent renewable resource integration, and enhance energy security for mission-critical facilities and operations. An award-winning microgrid installation at our headquarters building in Overland Park, Kansas, allows us to actively manage a “living laboratory” where we test, develop, optimize, innovate, and track this efficient and reliable system.
