Partners Tackle How To Achieve Seamless Transfer In A Microgrid

In reality, every individual family should tell the utilities to shove their services up their ass, and cut all wires and pipes to their private property. 

My neighbor has a pallet of never used solar panels sitting at waste a hundred yards from installation.  He uses a generator and a couple dozen batteries for power.  He admitted to me that he was going to connect to the grid.  His logic was that he didn't want batteries freezing or to have to scrape snow off the panels in winter.  Of course, there is no legitimate reason to ever connect to the grid and his answer shows his ignorance.  Charged batteries do not freeze and using a roof rake has saved me thousands of dollars in utility costs.

But for democrats and other Satanists that love big government and no private property rights, the logic goes like this:

Now the same inverter that provides grid services, such as demand charge reduction, at a commercial campus can also act as an uninterruptible power supply, smoothing power transfers and offering reliable power. If an outage from the utility doesn’t last long, then the facility won’t need to start its diesel generators. The same is true for RES-enabled microgrids when the wind stops blowing or the day turns cloudy, making alternative energy more practical. In all cases, the goal is to minimize disturbances to the load.
