Solar Microgrids for Agri




Socially inclusive and affordable green energy solutions for smallholders in sub-Saharan Africa. Our innovative approach combines the implementation of solar microgrids with the deployment of tractors - specifically designed for the African market.


The system uses a 15kW solar array and battery system to power micro-electric tractors for Deep Bed Farming which has been shown to increase smallholder revenue by up to 12 times.

This revenue can then be used to perpetually purchase domestic energy from the solar array, creating a self-sustaining model for decentralised energy access.
