Microgrids — an area of the electric grid that includes power generation, smart electric devices, and/or energy storage and can operate independently — have historically been mainstays at military bases and hospitals, places that need the most reliable power. Lower cost computing, renewable energy, and storage make the microgrid an increasingly viable option for grid users seeking lower prices, more renewables, and more choice than offered by their monopoly utility.
