Community Scale Microgrids

Island Communities across the globe are tackling issues of energy for a number of very important of reasons:

1.    More frequent and severe storms are causing longer and more regular power outages.

2.    Islands have notoriously high electricity costs compared to mainland communities

3.    Many island communities experience a large variation in population (therefore energy demand) between the on-season and off-season tourist industry.

Racepoint Energy has significant experience working on community energy solutions.  Our community microgrid combines renewable energy, storage, dynamic load management and full system control. It can be a complete stand-alone system or interface with existing infrastructure, be it generators, co-gen plants and/or connection to the utility grid.
