Solar SEED is developing a portfolio of power electronics that make renewable energy more sustainable and accessible by reducing system cost and complexity, improving flexibility and scalability while cultivating end-users to productively utilize solar energy in a more efficient and effective manner. Our primary market is ‘energy access’ for communities beyond-the-grid, though the need for reliable power exists in locations suffering from energy insecurity due to vulnerable or aging infrastructure.
Solar SEED's Patent Pending Smart Controller technology transforms the off-grid energy landscape by providing the first Multi-Modal / Storage Optional off-grid system functionalities:
PV REGULATOR: Generating regulated, usable DC and AC electricity directly from sunlight with load control.
MPPT CHARGING: Functioning highly-efficient MPPT, multi-stage battery charger for a variety of battery storage technologies (lead-acid, lithium, ni-cad, etc.); monitoring charge status, and having pr...

SYSTEM SAFETY-NET: Automatically reverting to PV REGULATOR mode in case batteries or generators fail or are unavailable.
We are initiating long-term pilot projects in Malawi with the Zayed Energy & Ecology Centre (www.ZEECmw.org), and exploring functionalities such as stacking to increase system capacity, remote control, cloud-based, performance monitoring, and data collection, with future sights set on developing turn-key packages with appliances and lighting, Pay-As-You-Go Home Systems, and eventually sub-metered Peer-to-Peer energy networks with flexible system topologies. We will utilize successful pilot projects and competitions for press and marketing, as well as converting pilots into direct sales to international and domestic non-profit and for-profit organizations as a pathway to commercialization, and securing additional investment.

ARC Alternative and Renewable Construction, LLC. (ARC) is pleased to offer our unqualified endorsement of Solar SEED in any and all efforts to deploy its highly innovative energy solution that produces usable DC and AC electricity from photovoltaic (PV) modules in solar systems with and without batteries. ARC’s leadership and management have decades of experience with the project's founders, and we are absolute supporters of their process and outcomes. We salute their integrity and their commitment to the development of forward-thinking sustainable, affordable off-grid renewable energy solutions that empower people and developworkforces that can proficiently implement these solutions. Please do not hesitate to contact us for more information if and as required.

The team at Solar SEED has developed a fantastic product that's new on the market. I run a solar installation company in Somalia and recognize the need for incremental and modular approaches to extending energy access. The adaptability of SEED to operate with or without batteries, and to scale as energy demand increases, reduces the amount of up-front investments by the end-user.

We are excited to distribute the Solar SEED to our customers with specific need of power for productive uses, like water pumping or cold storage.

Looking forward to seeing this technology develop and spread throughout the market!

Dear David,
Thank you for the briefing notes about your project. It outlines an amazing opportunity to introduce new renewable technology into areas that have been ‘off-grid’ for the majority of the existence and for that I commend you and your organization.
Having worked for PAHO in Dominica I am in full support of your endeavours to bring “light’ to where there is dark and hope where this suffering. Introducing PV into rural areas, will I feel increase awareness and learning to communities starved of technology.
Circulus Consultancy Services supports sustainable technologies and advancement in solar photovoltaic electricity and would work with you in any capacity available.
Yours Sincerely
Chris Stewart, Director
