Ansonia looks to create micro-grid

As a result of CT's new energy legislation, Ansonia is now planning to build its own li'l electric grid to sell municipal power to industrial customers. They figure that the "inter-city micro-grid" will pay itself back within 1.5 years and they will be able to supply more reliable power at a lower cost than existing suppliers. They anticipate building up to 1,000 KW of capacity, which is not a tremendous amount but a significant start. To give a rough idea of scale, this might generate enough power for 4 or 5 large supermarkets (demand fluctuates widely for industrial and commercial uses depending on the specific function).

There is a new company on the horizon that offers a unique solution to increasing energy bills.
Become part of the Grid. Take the first step and start generating electricity for yourself. Solar Power at the same rate for the next 25 years is bound to get the utility’s attention. Send the message that we can help them get their act together by being independent producers. Click below to find out more.

Go green, go solar!
