The Okra Pod

Putting every ray of sunlight to good use.

The Pod is the brainy building block of every Okra smart grid. It allows households to interconnect so that they can share energy to where it’s needed when it’s needed. This ensures each and every family has uninterrupted power for their essential needs – lighting, fans, mobile phone charging and TVs.

Power distribution is automatically balanced which means families can also use freezers, cooking equipment, washing machines and water pumps, without fear of blackout.

Okra Harvest

Enabling remote operation of data-driven smart grids.

Remote Monitoring

See what’s going on in granular detail: energy consumption, battery SoC, panel generation and more.

Alerts & Insights

Action maintenance tasks efficiently based on real-time alerts and insights delivered via machine learning.

Manage Portfolio
Monitor network uptime, energy utilisation and track payments to ensure your networks are all operating effectively and profitably
CRM
Manage relationships with end-users efficiently by easily upgrading from one package to another, finance appliances, change billing, and even send automated SMS via the platform.
Automated Maintenance
Using the wide range of sensors in our pods, actions are automatically generated based on data, decreasing the response time, and eliminating the need for humans to manually triage.
Access live data
If you want to dig in to debug, our system updates every 15 seconds, giving you close to real-time information on every single house in your network. You can see if an individual is tampering a device, how individual panels are performing, when users are most active, whether the house is sharing or receiving power. All at your finger-tips

Network Planning

Billions of dollars stand to be saved while achieving rapid electrification of the last mile.

Extending the grid to the last mile becomes exponentially more expensive as last mile communities are in some of the hardest to reach areas. Explore some of Okra’s target locations where microgrids make for profitable high impact solutions and let us know where you’d like to start building.
