Microgrid Bill Introduced in the House

Legislation allowing critical facilities like hospitals, police stations, emergency response centers and water treatment plants to operate their own microgrids to receive power during outages and emergencies was introduced in the House. HB 4477 would allow critical facilities to disconnect from the main electric grid and use electricity generated through alternative sources, like solar, during outages and emergencies.

The bill was introduced by Representative Steven Johnson (R-72).
