From an implementation standpoint, we have installed more micro-grid than any other company in the region (over 40), and have by far the strongest operational capacity with a headcount of nearly 90 employees. PowerGen also leads in terms of market development and thought leadership. We are frequently featured as speakers at industry events, have published widely read articles on the state of our sector, and are driving the organization of our industry through the establishment of a regional association of microgrid developers.
