“How can grid defection increase infrastructure resiliency to climate change?”

 

Grid-islanded systems are typically thought of as expensive alternatives to their grid-depended counterparts.

Since they can provide power in the case of natural disasters, they can provide extra resilience to communities such as Puerto Rico who experienced a grid shutdown from Hurricane Maria.
