Industrial firms rely upon cheap, reliable electricity to power their processes. As the grid ages and reliability decreases, the desire for cleaner energy increases, raising costs. This has led many firms to explore options that can increase efficiency and reliability. Exploring DC power solutions offers industry the ability to manage demand charges and increase the reliability of energy, especially when many of their internal processes already run on DC power. By eliminating the AC-DC conversion and providing a framework to access localized generation, a switch to DC power can ensure operational continuity at a lower cost.
