Disaster Preparedness

We Keep You Up and Running, No Matter What Happens

Disaster PreparednessRecent natural disasters have illustrated that reliance on fossil fuel generators for back-up power during times of emergency is no longer enough to protect your business. Northern Reliability’s energy storage solutions work with or without a solar component, ensure your business’s critical loads, power your entry systems, and keep security measures up and running… even when the utility is down and generator fuel is scarce.

Our energy storage solutions also offer a valuable array of additional benefits for when emergency operation is on standby. Benefits include peak shaving opportunities, energy storage for net metered renewables, and critical load back-up power. Typical Disaster Preparedness & Response applications include:

• Back-up power not reliant on utility grid or fossil fuels for critical loads and building security, elevators, and entry systems
• Mobile cellular solutions for temporary offices, shelters


Northern Reliability Is at the Vanguard of the Microgrid Revolution

IslandsResidents of islands and remote rural communities have long been dependent on diesel fueled generators as their primary source of energy. Microgrids are emerging as an exciting option for these communities, generating power at the point of use in a cost-effective, sustainable manner. Untethered from reliance on diesel fuel or the traditional utility grid, island and remote communities are achieving energy independence and security by combining power from natural resources with battery energy storage and intelligent system controls.

Northern Reliability is at the vanguard of this micro-grid revolution with a team of engineers that pioneered some of these first systems in such remote outposts as Alaska and Antarctica. With more mainstream clientele interested in the benefits of being grid and diesel free, Northern Reliability is now delivering microgrid solutions to vacation communities and other campus-like environments.

Oil & Gas
