Backup Power-as-a-Service

Integrated Reliability on Call (iROC)

Enchanted Rock is reinventing electrical resiliency through our microgrid-as-a-service model known as Integrated Reliability on Call, or (iROC), which provides customers with the most reliable, most affordable backup power in the market. Natural gas generators protect Enchanted Rock customers from power loss, allowing their business to operate normally during a grid outage. With 99.999% combined availability to our customers and backup generation at 10-20% of the cost of a standard reliability system, you won’t find a better solution than Enchanted Rock.

Enchanted Rock’s iROC offering includes the engineering, design, procurement, construction, installation, operations, maintenance, and dispatch of the microgrid system for a 15 to 20-year service agreement. The natural gas-powered generators act as microgrids and can run synchronously with the grid or in “island mode,” where they disconnect and generate power separately from the grid at customer sites. This allows Enchanted Rock to provide power for their customers even when the grid is down. Enchanted Rock’s microgrid-as-a-service offering has six unique features that aren’t typical of standard backup power systems:


Our microgrids run often and run loaded, providing constant conditioning and testing which leads to a higher level of availability than traditional diesel backup.


When customers are not using backup power, Enchanted Rock aggregates the generators and sells power back to the grid to earn revenue. These frequent runs allow us to subsidize 80-90% of the cost to customers.


Our microgrids use clean-burning natural gas that have emissions of less than 1% of a standard Tier 2 diesel generator and less than 4% of a standard Tier 4 generator.


Enchanted Rock manages the assets and is responsible for the maintenance and operations of our resiliency microgrids for the life of the contract, allowing customers to focus on their core business.


With a sound level of <68 dBa at 7 meters and a footprint of 8.5 by 10 feet, Enchanted Rock generators allow for multiple layout configurations and improved power density.


Enchanted Rock gensets supply the grid with a quickstart generation source during normal operating conditions that supports the integration of renewable energy sources by supplying capacity to the grid when renewable power may be low.
