Empowering People

Through Energy Access

Okra plug-and-play smart grids combine the flexibility of solar home systems with the power availability of fully fledged mini-grids. Now, energy utility companies can electrify “last mile” off-grid communities around the world. With mobile payments, live alerting and autonomous power distribution, ensuring 24/7 electricity access for those who need it most has never been so easy.

Introducing Okra’s next generation IoT smart grid controller: a device that monitors and reports grid activity to the cloud in real time. With more power than ever before, off-grid households will be able to run multiple productive appliances in parallel, including freezers, TVs, water pumps, washing machines and cooktops.

 

More Data

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.

How It 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.
