Backup Power-as-a-Service

Enchanted Rock provides backup power for customers through their microgrid-as-a-service model. The natural gas-powered generators act as microgrids and can run synchronously with the grid or in “island mode,” where they disconnect and generate power separately from the grid at customer sites. This allows ERock to provide power for their customers even when the grid is down. Enchanted Rock’s microgrid-as-a-service offering has six unique features that aren’t typical of standard backup power systems:

RELIABLE

Our microgrids run often and run loaded, providing constant conditioning and testing which leads to a higher level of availability than traditional diesel backup.

COST EFFECTIVE

When customers are not using backup power, ERock aggregates the generators and sells back to the grid to earn revenue. These frequent runs allow us to subsidize 80-90% of the cost to customers.

CLEAN

Our microgrids use clean-burning natural gas that have emissions of less than 1% of a standard Tier 2 diesel generator and less than 4% of a standard Tier 4 generator.

TROUBLE-FREE

ERock manages the assets and is responsible for the maintenance and operations of our resiliency microgrids, allowing customers to focus on their core business.

QUIET & COMPACT

With a sound level of <68 dBa at 7 meters and a footprint of 8.5 by 10 feet, ERock generators allow for multiple layout configurations and improved power density.

SUPPORTS RENEWABLES

ERock gensets supply the grid with a quickstart generation source during normal operating conditions that supports the integration of renewable energy sources by supplying capacity to the grid when renewable power may be low.
