A microgrid is a small-scale power grid that can run independently from a traditional centralised power grid. It has its own generation, storage and distribution resources. Sharing local solar energy through the microgrid helps strengthen the local economy and contributes to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. It also provides users with control over where their energy is sourced.
Prosumers (people who own solar systems) list their excess energy on the Pando app which consumers can bid for. ■
