Establishing a Renewable Micro-Grid for a Residential Scenario: How, Why and Where to Next?

June 17, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Abstract: Residential photovoltaic solar installations have existed in Saskatchewan for a number of years, fostered by dedicated homeowner interest, funding support models and acceptance by the provincial utility operator (SaskPower). As these installations matured, and the nature of distributed generation at both small and medium scale emerged, the concept of micro-grids often arises as a solution for our energy future. Can a true micro-grid exist in a residence? The answer is yes. Is it a simple undertaking? The answer is not as straightforward. Is this of value looking through the various lenses of utilities and homeowners? This question forms one of the elements presented in this presentation. From a technical (system level) and experiential perspective, the development and nascent operation of an eight kW photovoltaic micro-grid with storage and islanding capabilities will be explored in this presentation.
