The first few watts of power that a customer receives are hugely transformative. As such, Standard Microgrid's proprietary grid management system is tailored to provision basic power needs to the greatest number of people.
Our architecture incorporates flexible, rugged, modular components with proprietary grid management tools to deliver reliable, modern alternating current (AC) energy services in harsh and remote environments. Fully contained within a 20' shipping container, the 10kW micro power utility can be deployed in three days, with the capacity to deliver power to upwards of 150 homes.
Every aspect of the Standard Microgrid approach has been developed to respond to the unique challenges and risks of deploying commercially viable energy assets in rural African environments.
User programs are determined and shaped in such a way that the maximum amount of energy passing through the system is allocated to user benefits and billed for accordingly. This hyper efficient use of capital delivers value to customers, who pay less than their least cost alternative, while providing commercial returns to investors.
Standard Microgrid has been reliably installing and operating off-grid power systems in Sub Saharan Africa for the past 4 years.
With backgrounds in renewable energy, finance and business in Africa, and years of experience researching, developing and deploying projects, the team possess the experience and insights required to tackle the biggest problem facing this continent.
The complex operations of the grid have been simplified and automated to enable any member of the community to operate the grid, collect payments and control demand.
Local entrepreneurs operate as agents, re-selling prepaid credit to community members. Local management encourages community buy-in and long term project sustainability as people feel ownership of the system and act to protect the power system.
Standard Microgrid's number one metric of success is customer satisfaction, without which we have no business.
Users buy prepaid credit subscription plan specifically tailored to their individual needs and the appliances they currently own. Giving users the ability to plan their consumption in advance removes the chance of unexpectedly high bills and ensures that customers receive maximum value per kilowatt hour consumed.
