DISTRIBUTED POWER INCREASES SECURITY

Smaller power generation centres provide multiple benefits to security and efficiency of electrical production facilities. Centralized, large power generation facilities produce mega amounts of electricity which is in turn pushed through the transmission system to consumers throughout a large radius often extending hundreds of miles in all directions. Efficiency is subject to line loss, as the energy used to push electricity through the wires, and lossage due to deterioration of the wires due to ultra-violet, weather conditions and heat, takes its toll on available power. Smaller, distributed power centres add a high level of security towards interference in the electrical power generation facilities from attacks or malicious sabotage.
