If you are considering solar panel installation, microgrids are an excellent addition to any residential home in Denver.
A system of localized microgrids normally work with the electrical grid. Microgrids however, function as a standalone unit! A microgrid at your home or business in Denver, will maximize what you get out of your solar panels.
Since microgrids are can functionally work in grid connected, and on their own, microgrids also provide a brilliant fix for supplying power in case of a power outage or another event. With Colorado’s unpredictable weather, it is always a good idea to have a back-up power system at your home or business in the Denver metro area.
Microgrids can save a life if for any reason your power goes out.
A typical microgrid can range from 1 KW to several megawatts, depending on the size of your residential home or commercial business in the Denver metro area. Every solar PV panel connects to the array or electric generators by converting solar radiation into electrical energy. All PV Panels are built to maximize efficiency and provide adequate power to any home in the Denver area. The electricity generated from the array of panels is transmitted to a central controller called the Power Conditioning Unit (PCU), which is a large power inverter. The PCU is connected to the Distribution Box (DB) on one hand and the battery bank on the other.
Microgrids are a beautiful addition to any building aesthetically, and better yet, during the day, power generated is not used or surplus power is generated, the PCU stores this in the battery storage unit, which stores the unused solar power. This power can be used for any purpose, and will be stored on site. You can use it at night, or in the event of a malfunction. The microgrid and battery storage unit are connected to a computer, so you can always stay on top of your energy consumption. This information can be accessed from a remote location, eliminating the need for local manpower to monitor the system.
Microgrids are an extremely essential part of any solar energy system. With Golden Solar, we guarantee that you will be happily satisfied with the way that you monitor and manage the solar energy at your commercial business in the Denver metro area. Give us a call today!
