Who do you work with?2021-07-19T17:13:10+00:00

Ageto typically partners with solar installers, OEMs, and project developers to deliver turnkey microgrids in the commercial and industrial sectors. The microgrid system control is mission critical and one of the most important procurement decisions to ensure the microgrid lives up to customer expectations. The Ageto ARC Controller delivers superlative value to solar and storage projects.

At what stage in a project does Ageto get involved?2021-07-19T17:12:19+00:00

Ageto can be called upon at any point in your project timeline. We have multiple projects in which we were able to get an installed microgrid up and working after years of non-functionality or underperformance. We enjoy getting involved in the early stage as well and can offer initial analysis work, design input or energy resource recommendations based on our expertise and experience from previous successful projects.
