In California, where large parts of the electric grid went down last year because of the risk of fires, the utility PG&E is also working to build solar microgrids in areas that are most vulnerable to wildfire. In Australia, Cannon-Brookes envisions some rural areas switching permanently to microgrids. … [Read more...] about New microgrids are helping Australia get power back after the fires
