How to Get Off the Electric Grid, Stabilize Cost & Increase Efficiency

Feb. 1, 2023
This new report from Mesa Solutios explores how to get off the electric grid, and do it while retaining  and increasing reliability, efficiency, and cost stability. “There’s a lot to unpack here, but I don’t mind unpacking it…”, says Thomas Poteet, VP, corporate development, at Mesa Solutions.

 When a half dozen beneficial and complementary capabilities present themselves for optimal use all at once, it can be challenging to tell the story linearly. But for starters, here’s a candidate for a long title to this article: “How to get your commercial or industrial site completely off the electric grid by using prime power internal combustion engine natural gas generators fueled primarily by the natural gas distribution system, and have about three backup scenarios, and include some solar to reduce baseload fuel consumption and get you started down the road to more renewables later, and utilize the latest in Internet-of-things sensor and control technology to make your electric sourcing and electric loading one self-aware intelligent system that constantly works to improve reliability and efficiency while keeping all this capability essentially under the cost ceiling of what you’re currently paying just for grid power.” Wow. 

There’s a lot to unpack here, but I don’t mind unpacking it, because it took me about 30 years to be able to write the previous paragraph, says Thomas Poteet, VP, corporate development, at Mesa Solutions.
