Focus On Your Business, Not Your Microgrid
Enchanted Rock provides electrical resiliency solutions and allows you to focus on what matters most, your core business. As your Electrical Resiliency-as-a-Service partner, Enchanted Rock owns, operates, and maintains the microgrid systems.
Experienced operators manage the status, security, maintenance and dispatch of the microgrid in real-time from our state-of-theart Microgrid Network Operations Center (mNOC). Our energy trading experts in the mNOC interface in real-time with retail and wholesale energy markets, providing grid capacity based on the unique requirements of each electricity market and revenue opportunity.
Enchanted Rock utilizes a “run loaded, run often” approach to maximize reliability of our microgrids. Most backup systems are only run during occasional testing and during emergencies, increasing the chance of failure when you need the system most.
Natural Gas-Fueled Generation More Reliable Than Diesel
During crisis situations, natural gas is readily available through underground infrastructure that remains unaffected by flooding and other severe weather events. By contrast, fuel must be delivered by truck to traditional diesel-fueled generators. This become impossible when road conditions are dangerous due to flooding. This makes natural gas the obvious fuel of choice during inclement weather. In addition, it is also a cleaner fuel source than diesel with 10X lower carbon emissions.
More Affordable Diesel
Enchanted Rock customers enjoy for a fraction of the cost of a comparable diesel backup system. This is because in our unique model, Enchanted Rock sells power to the grid when the generators are not in use, subsidizing the cost of your solution.
