The smart way to manage
a smart grid

Our web platform enables you to manage mobile payments, remotely turn houses ON and OFF, and receive notifications if there is unusual behaviour like panel shading or controller bypassing. It also enables you to keep a close eye on PV generation, load consumption and battery charge at all nodes in an Okra network. With this data, you can easily scale networks with growing energy demands.

Available Soon

We take pride in designing our products based on feedback coming directly from the energy utilities we partner with, and the families they electrify.

The Okra Pod will be available for pre-order soon. If you’re interested in being a beta tester, please leave your details below and we’ll get in touch as soon as it’s ready!

How Okra Works

Our smart software distributes excess solar power through the network to neighbouring households that need extra juice. This ensures no sunlight is wasted, making energy more affordable and readily available.

Our modular architecture allows any household to connect to a pre-existing Okra grid, at any time. Whether it’s 10 or 100 new households wanting to join – just plug and play! A minimum of 2 households is required to start a new cluster.
