Micro Grid, Macro Solution

When grid power is unreliable or suddenly goes out, it’s important to have a source of power at the ready to keep the lights on. At NEI Electric Power Engineering, we’ve been working with organizations and communities at home and around the world to ensure their energy needs are met with intelligently designed and meticulously commissioned microgrids.

When you install a microgrid, you’re ensuring reliable operation of your electrical assets while tied to utility power and while islanded. These types of microgrid projects require planning and versatility to ensure loads and generation are balanced in a way that can meet the dynamic challenges being tied to either utility power or islanded offer. Perfect as a stop-gap during a loss of power event or as the main source of power in a rural community, NEI’s field-tested team works alongside our clients to identify their needs.
