DC-based energy efficient solar power solutions for enhancing off grid clean energy access
DC RUNS EVERYTHING WE USE
All of today’s home and office appliances such as TVs, Computers, tablets, mobile phones, LED lights, and so on, work on Direct Current (DC) – made even better with solar energy. Solar PVs and other renewable sources generate energy in DC, so we save costs and eliminate inverter losses by going DC. Virtually every household and office appliance today has a DC-ready alternative or easily retroffitable to DC. A major advantage with DC systems is that the components use less raw material and saves on energy which results in lower running costs.
DC makes democratic use of power possible, as it works best in decentralized off-grid settings. We deploy decentralized DC Solar to power rural homes, farms and businesses to provide the much needed basic electricity. Focusing more in the rural off-grid communities at this time, with very little or no electricity infrastructure means there’s little conversion challenges and less appliances to retrofit to DC.
