Pick the answer which best reflects your views.
Microgrids are primarily a niche application and have little value to the broader electric system.
Microgrid value is purely an economic determination: i.e.; use when less expensive than adding a second feed or when the microgrid system can reduce onsite and system upgrade costs by curtailing peaks or reducing new capacity requirements.
Microgrids can provide system stability, improved power quality and black start capability when properly designed major distributed energy resources (DERs) are connected to the grid.
