What is a Power Grid?
A power grid delivers electricity from power plants to homes and businesses across the nation. This grid is responsible for power generation, transmission, and delivery. You may be familiar with your power company as they are who you are renting your power from. Power grid is also interchangeable with “power distribution grid”, “electrical grid”, or “national grid”.
How does a power grid work?
A power grid infrastructure consists of power stations, transmission lines, and distribution lines. There are three smaller regional grids within the continental United States: Eastern, Western, and Texas Interconnection.
Why are people shifting away from the power grid?
People want to save money and own their power while doing so. When you go solar, you are no longer an eternal renter of the power companies. Power grid failure is another huge reason to shift away from this power source. Accidents and missteps with power lines, large-scale cyber attacks, unforeseen weather, and more are reasons people are turning away from the power grid.
When you go solar, you get to own your power and save money on your electricity. At Everlight, we’re able to offset expensive electricity prices because our solar panels produce energy much more efficiently than traditional utilities. You save money by paying for power at a rate that’s lower than what your utility can provide.
Everlight Solar enables households to own their power instead of renting it from the power company. We believe that going solar should be headache and hassle-free. Talk to a solar expert today.
