Local goods are all the rage these days, manifesting itself in farm-to-fork restaurants, shop local campaigns, and farmers’ markets. But there is one element this local-first mindset forgets about – energy production.
Currently, most of our electricity is produced at large facilities and then transmitted around the country for local use. This system worked great to allow a few large facilities to provide power to a wide range of customers. But there are inherent risks and flaws in such a system – especially given the shift in power generating technology over the last half-decade.
While our current system helped our country grow and develop, there is now an opportunity to grow in an exciting new direction. There are several benefits to moving toward a decentralized power grid – and solar power can be a major component of that move. Let’s look at the benefits:
The pinnacle of de-centralized power is an off-grid system. That’s why we at Mountain Power Solutions decided to focus on off-grid power systems for western Colorado and eastern Utah. Given the complexity of off-grid solar systems, there was a serious lack of companies providing off-grid systems around our home in Palisade, Colorado.
We started Mountain Power Solutions to help fill that void and provide high-quality solar services to our area. Whether you need service on an existing system or a complete design and build, we are the local experts for all your off-grid solar needs!
If you are interested in the benefits of a decentralized power supply or want to go off-grid with your property, contact us today! We’ll help you achieve your solar goals – no matter how complex or difficult.
