Uninterrupted Power. Unrivalled Running Costs

APS Smart Inverters charge Lithium or traditional batteries from solar and/or unreliable grid power. Over its lifetime our solution produces electricity at $0.20 per kWh, affordably replacing diesel generators at last

Off Grid Power for On Grid Prices

Generator Terminator

The challenge with renewable power is everything between the solar panel and your appliances. We solve that.
The APS 5000 uniquely combines a Solar Charger Controller, 5kVA AC Inverter, Battery Charger and Remote Monitoring System into one easily installed rugged box. Paired with low cost solar panels and Lithium batteries, it is a rapid-installed replacement for diesel & petrol generators.

Comes with its own Internet Connection

Only APS Smart Inverters include a GSM/3G modem and a globally roaming APS SIM card and data plan for out of the box system monitoring from Sierra Leone to Syria. Our antenna boosts your GPRS signal and our SIM works across multiple networks to ensure connectivity. No WiFi required.

10 Year Lithium Batteries. Now for Off Grid

Traditional batteries fail fast and their replacement costs hold back affordable off grid power. Most Lithium-based Home Energy Systems only work with Grid-Tied solar inverters and so cannot be used in Africa.
We‘ve partnered with BYD, the world‘s largest producer of Lithium Batteries and our APS 5000 works with their 10 Year B-Box 2.5kWh 48V Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) modular batteries which can be wall or rack-mounted and scaled up to 80kWh of Energy Storage.

Beautiful OLED Displays

The APS 5000 features high-contrast sunlight-readable 2.4“ OLED display showing information on system performance and connectivity and a dedicated 1“ OLED display showing current Power Consumption in Watts to serve as an live Watt Meter for your whole home, business or clinic so you can see how much power your TV or microwave suddenly used.

Powerful Dashboard and Analytics

Monitor Your Sites, Not Just Your Inverter
APS Smart Inverters gather data every second and upload over GPRS every 2 hours with faults reported in real-time. Power usages is a proxy for activity. As a funder or installer you can see all your assets in one dashboard and benefit from insights such as how late clinics are open or whether appliances have failed.

Overcoming Affordability with Prepaid Energy

Taking Solar Mainstream with Montly Costs that Match Diesel
Renewable energy saves money over time but cost more up front than a diesel generator. In countries with high costs of capital, our partners ensure affordability through leasing with monthly costs matched to fuel costs, allowing Solar & Storage to go mainstream.
Our software enables systems to be turned off remotely, enabling Pay as You Go Business Models or metering.

Live Solar Irradiance Weather Info

Only our dashboard displays real-time solar insolation weather data filtered through your PV installation details so you can compare how your solar is performing vs its maximum potential second by second.

Thermally Designed for Africa

Our unique cooling system pulls air through dust filters on the top and pushes down through internal aluminium heatsinks rather than bringing in dusty air from the bottom.
