Micasa AI was originally developed for optimizing solar power systems in the South African context, and we now stand with a product that we can plug into various inverters to optimize your power production.
The cost of electricity is rising all the time, and fees and tariffs in South Africa aren’t beneficial for home owners. Knowing this, it is becoming more and more essential to optimize photovoltaic (PV) system performance. Most PV systems, whether hybrid (with battery back-up for power outages) or connected to the grid, are not producing to full potential; this is due to production and consumption profiles not matching. Micasa AI manages non-intrusive energy loads (like appliances) with the aim to use as much renewable energy as possible, thereby reducing the energy drawn from the grid. With our Micasa VP (Variable Power) Box we optimize solar power even more through dumping excess power into water tanks, optimizing the solar plant.
This is all done by Micasa AI. As it becomes the manager of pool and heat pumps, geysers and any other appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines, and tumble dryers, Micasa AI prioritizes the energy source as renewable energy. Many well-known brands work with hardware that beautifully integrates with Micasa AI.
