A microgrid is a backup power system that can disconnect from the traditional power grid and operate on its own. The microgrid will provide backup power storage for Miller Community Center during emergency events, such as a windstorm or unplanned power outage.

The project includes the installation of a battery energy storage system, solar panels and microgrid controls.
