Alexis Ringwald, Co-Founder of Valence Energy, discusses a number of smart energy solutions being implemented in a smart solar home micro-grid.
A few of the options include roof-top solar PV systems as well as solar water heaters, and water and gas meters.
Due to the fact diesel generated electricity is so costly, solar energy makes for a sensible alternative.
Additionally, smart metering technology integrated on a micro-grid creates an intelligent energy solution that allows for optimal energy management for the community,demand response to minimize consumption and also provides more information to the customer.
Micro-grid's are much more than a trending fad, they offer practical alternatives to reducing or eliminating ones dependence on utility companies.
