Micro Grid - Diesel Offset

Community Diesel Offset

Multiple AC sources can be used as part of a micro-grid that powers multiple homes and allows diesel to be offset by solar energy. Solar panels feed directly into the micro-grid through grid connected Magnum inverters and onto a large storage bank. When there is solar energy available, the loads are offset and storage system is charged thus offsetting the generator run time. The micro-grid can still call upon the generator for assistance when required. Reduce power costs and greenhouse gas emissions by offsetting diesel with solar.


Microgrid Advantages

  • PV power fed directly into micro-grid
  • Inverter based micro-grid feeds several buildings
  • Generator run time eliminated most of the year
  • Access energy stored for later use
