Microgrids and Resiliency

Fully integrated distributed energy solutions to help businesses, asset managers and utility operators control their costs and minimize their environmental impact. Expert engineers design every energy system in-house — from autonomous microgrids to emergency backup power to end-to-end energy efficiency improvements. 


Advanced microgrid systems designed to deliver continuous and redundant power generation — even during blackouts and other grid disruptions. Through our partnership with PowerSecure, a part of the Southern Company, NRTC can offer microgrid solutions that integrate seamlessly with the existing electricity network, which autonomously generate and store energy so that you can continue powering your operations. Equally important, they are source-agnostic, allowing you to balance your energy mix for increased redundancy and resiliency. 


An electric utility’s commercial and industrial (C&I) members represent an important part of their load profile. Through PowerSecure, NRTC can help our co-op members provide tangible demand management to these valuable members — leveraging back-up generation to meet back-up power requirements and avoid high-cost power and demand charges. Best of all, it does so by leveraging assets the C&I member already has in place.
