The most efficient, cost -effective and economical way of using elecricity
How Do Solar Microgrids Work?
Multiple elements are at play while setting up an effective Microgrid.
Below is a brief explanation of how this will work for you.
The gate meter, tenancy meters and common meter form an embedded network that allows all to benefit from bulk energy prices from the external electricity grid.
4. Solar Panels (Solar Power Plant)
Solar panels are installed at the property, forming the Solar Power Plant. These enable the generation of low-cost and green energy for the property. The electricity generated through these panels is distributed via the embedded network to the different tenants and common areas.
You earn revenue for renting your roof to install the solar panels.
The solar panels allow the embedded network to use solar energy generated on-site at a significantly lower cost.
Using these elements, the solution from Microgrid Power Direct generates immediate revenue and electricity savings for your commercial, industrial, retail and residential properties in Australia.
1. Gate Meter (Parent Meter)
A gate meter is installed to maximise the combined buying power of all tenants and enables the purchase of grid sourced electricity at best wholesale prices which benefits all tenants and common areas.
You save dollars by buying (grid-sourced) electricity in bulk at cheaper prices.
2. Tenancy Meters (Child Meters)
Along with the main Gate Meter, smart meters are fitted for each tenant/energy consumer within the Microgrid. This enables each user to be appropriately billed just for their energy usage during a given period.
Your tenants enjoy cheaper, greener and cleaner electricity without lifting a finger. Guaranteed discounts are included in the contracts for your tenants.
3. Common Meter (Child Meter)
A common meter is set up for the property; this enables us to measure energy consumption for the common areas in the property such as hallway lights, carpark lighting, lifts and the like.
You slash your operational costs by using cheap electricity via the common meter.
It takes two three to tango...
