Abstract. This study is focused on the possibility of utilizing  solar energy nano grids for feeding small scale critical loads. The reasons conditioning this necessity are reviewed and the strengths of small scale micro grids over the centralized type of powering are stated. On the basis of studies on renewable energy sources, photovoltaic converters are pointed to be most appropriate for small scale generation in urban conditions at specific geographical region. The loads of typical traffic lights show that they are relatively constant, which makes such consumers very suitable for micro or nano grids.
