Microgrids are Making Investors Macro Gains

HENDERSON, NV / ACCESSWIRE / December 19, 2018 / Microgrids are one of the best solutions we have for the energy challenges that come along with natural disasters. With climate change increasing the frequency of these disasters, microgrids will be increasingly sought after by organizations that cannot afford to lose power.

Today we are highlighting: CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK), Exelon Corporation (EXC), Siemens (OTC PINK: SIEGY), Tesla, Inc. (TSLA), and SunPower Corporation (SPWR).

GTM Research forecasts $12.5 billion in microgrid investment within the United States over the next six years.

''U.S. Microgrids 2017: Market Drivers, Analysis and Forecast'' identifies 3.2 GW of existing microgrid capacity growing to 6.5 GW by 2022.

GTM Research forecasts that generation procurement will account for 40 percent of the total microgrid investment during the period. Fuel-based generators represent nearly all generation to date, but renewables are expected to grow by more than tenfold (to 730 megawatts) to account for 26 percent of total microgrid capacity by 2020.

One company with a renewable microgrid solution that was recently ranked in the top ten by industry thought leader Navigant Research CleanSpark, Inc. (CLSK) (Market Cap: $80.41M Share Price: $2.20) could be an ideal way to capitalize on this growing market.

CLSK has a unique microgrid solution. Their mPulse software reduces the monthly electricity bill on facilities like indoor grow-houses by up to 82%! They do this by virtually eliminating the demand charges that can account for almost 50% of the utility charges for such a facility.

CLSK also just released an impressive letter to shareholders highlighting: an agreement for an $18.3 million 'Zero Net Energy' Microgrid with an S&P 500 Member Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT), near completion on a $900,000 contract to install a 'turn-key advanced microgrid system' at the U.S. Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, they have been awarded 2 patents, and they updated an acquisition that could be a huge boost to the company's year end revenues.

CLSK's acquisition, Pioneer Custom Electrical Products, has delivered $32 million in products since 2016 and has $5 million in backlog. They have also received a $2.4 million equipment order as part of a contract for the new U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon which should end up on CLSK's balance sheet.

(TSLA) (Market Cap: $57.87B Share Price: $337.03) another avid microgrid company's CEO Elon Musk made a brief public appearance recently to unveil the first tunnel completed by the underground transit venture he launched two years ago as an ambitious remedy to Los Angeles' infamously heavy traffic.
