Today's energy system came into existence around 1900 due to the many inventions of the time, such as the move away from horse-drawn carriages and gas lamps to cars and electric lights. Now, we have the potential to make the next major change away from fossil fuels.
After a storm like Michael or Florence, it may take weeks or months to fully restore electricity. Solar and energy storage technologies can help address immediate, short-term needs while building a resilient electricity grid for the future.
No matter what the extreme weather situation is, strain on the grid is increasing. In general, it matters less these days to a utility how much energy is needed; more important is when and where energy needs to be distributed.
Larger grids make more sense in places that have more landmass, like continents. But even they can benefit from the concept of adding in microgrids to help supply power during blackouts, which is pretty much the entire concept of a microgrid.
