"…cutting-edge GridLink technology enables a safe connection between a microgrid and a traditional grid"
Edison Electric Institute
"[GridLink will] preclude any potential detrimental effects on the power delivery system [and] eliminate the potential of voltage, frequency, and phase-angle mismatching between the facilities and the utility grid.”
"[GridLink] provides a potentially revolutionary aid in development of Microgrids and distributed generation for a myriad of customers with varying applications.
Burns & McDonnell
"We believe that Pareto Energy’s non-synchronous approach, which separates the voltage, frequency, and phase angle of the microgrid from that of the utility grid, shows promise for safer and more affordable interconnection."
GridLink enables additional pathways and sources of power generation, greatly increasing the odds of avoiding or overcoming blackouts. And did we mention GridLink also acts as a firewall to increase resiliency to cyber-attacks? Yup.
Environment, meet GridLink. Fewer resources are used, since electricity no longer needs to be transmitted across vast distances. Supplemental grid power means fluctuating supply (i.e. sun, wind, etc.) is no longer a barrier to renewable energy sources.
GridLink provides DG owners with a more flexible way to sell excess power and import supplemental electricity when needed. Meanwhile, utilities gain access to lower-cost power sources and the ability to sell ancillary services. Everyone experiences better reliability.
Garbage in equals garbage out? We beg to differ. GridLink's non-synchronous approach conditions the power, eliminating voltage sags and spikes, harmonics, and transients. GridLink leaves the electricity better than it found it.
