Identification

The Solar-DC Inverterless Controller has been developed based on the global trends of increasing relevance of distributed energy generation through rooftop solar and savings through energy efficiency. Solar-DC Inverter-less Controller for Off-Grid Homes or near Off-Grid-Homes (where grid is available but power availability is intermittent) is a Low Voltage DC technology based on 48V DC. The key product which will be used is the Cygni Integrated Built-in Lithium-Ion Battery Inverter-less System. This is one of the most efficient photovoltaic power backup system available in the market offering up to 40% lesser power consumption and 50% reduction in electricity bills. About 30-40% of the energy conversion loses can be reduced.

Company Profile

Cygni Energy

At Cygni, we believe solar power can actually cost less than we pay now resulting in significant savings! CYGNI’s Inverterless Solar-DC solution offers an economical and affordable solution for off-grid/ near off-grid homes (homes with large power-cuts), and is also useful for grid-connected homes in saving power-bills as well as providing back-up power. This is achieved by Solar-DC INVERTERLESS technology, developed in collaboration with IIT Madras. Solar-DC Inverterless is an innovative technology that provides 48V DC to power DC appliances. With growing emphasis on energy conservation world over and with more DC appliances now becoming available, most homes in the world will gradually move to DC power. This is India’s opportunity to lead this “Go-DC” revolution.
