Eliminate Outages with Resilient Power
Dealing with the causes and consequences of today’s most pressing energy challenges.
During 2020, there were 22 separate billion-dollar weather and climate disaster events across the United States, breaking the previous annual record of 16 events that occurred in 2017 and 2011.
From planned outages in the west to storm-induced outages in the south and east, these high-impact, high-cost ramifications of power disruptions have elevated the discussion around energy independence and the essential role microgrids play in combating our new normal.
As a critical, always-on solution, microgrids can operate alongside a main grid, but independently of it during a power outage. What does this independence mean? Resilient power.
- Creates a reliable, safe space for communities
- Safeguards business operations and the bottom line
- Contributes to grid hardening by alleviating pressure on centralized infrastructure
The Importance of Resilient Power
Converging climate and public health crises have played a significant role in highlighting our economy’s dependencies, elevating risks and exposing harsh new realities.
An aging centralized grid that is prone to outages and natural disasters, coupled with a dangerous cyber-threat landscape has left society heavily reliant on a power delivery system that has simply not kept pace with the evolution of its surrounding environment.
Stakeholders across the organizational spectrum are navigating an unprecedented risk landscape – energy security has become table stakes as people search for solutions that can keep the lights on amidst the growing frequency of threats.

AlwaysON Microgrids for Business Resiliency
Meeting challenges head on with AlwaysON Microgrids
The AlwaysON Microgrid Solution is the 21st century answer to long grid outages (planned or unplanned) and extreme weather disruption.
Our technology also avoids the vulnerabilities of conventional transmission and distribution lines by generating power on-site, where the electricity is consumed. The system operates at very high availability due to its modular and fault-tolerant design and utilizes the highly reliable underground gas pipeline so there is no single point of failure.
There is no longer a need to store extra fuel, buy extra backup power, or relocate your facilities. The AlwaysOn Microgrid’s simple and elegant design offers protection from outages with reduced emissions, and is available as a service with no upfront costs.
