Resilience and Microgrids in the Hospitality Industry

Event Details

Increasingly, facilities are having to deal with the consequences of an aging electric grid - from brownouts to blackouts. Even properties with stable grid power are seeing dramatic utility rate increases and trying to figure out how to be more independent of the grid. In this webinar, we will review what it means to operate a microgrid and provide a brief overview of the current energy technologies on the market. Based on Regatta's experience with solar, battery storage and cogeneration, we will talk about how alternative technologies can work together to reduce bills, help the bottom line and make hotels more resilient.
