How Emrgi Works

Picture1.png

Rooftop solar panels are a great way to generate electricity from the sun, but they are not practical for or accessible to all households.

 

Some roofs may be heavily shaded, or have a less than ideal pitch. Some families may not have the capital needed to invest in installation.

 Whatever your reason, Emrgi provides an alternative to residential solar installation by connecting your home to a local solar farm.

Emrgi uses existing grid infrastructure in conjunction with your grid operator to provide reliable clean energy in a simple three step process:

  1. To start, all you need is your grid provider account credentials or last month's energy bill. Follow the steps at emrgi.com/activate to recieve a fixed, all-in rate for 100% solar power based on your usage history.

  2. Once you have reviewed and activated your Emrgi plan, we will seamlessly transition you to automatic payments with us through Square.

  3. Enjoy your solar energy and check your inbox for a monthly summary which includes information on your impact and performance relative to your plan’s estimates.

How do I know that the energy I am getting is from solar?

We leverage the same metering and rules developed for businesses and governments to guarantee that the energy generated from solar is delivered to and consumed by each home. Local grid operators guarantee the same 24/7 reliability as usual, storing your power until our members need it.

Unlike some methods of supporting renewable energy projects, including many offered by utilities and installers, Emrgi's solar providers deliver physical power to the same region of the grid as its members, meaning that Emrgi members consume the energy from the projects that they support. 

Our Pitch for Clean Energy

Meet Zelda

Zelda is a solar farm in Asheboro, North Carolina. The project was born in April 2019 and generates enough solar electricity every year to power 250 homes. 

Emrgi uses the solar electricity from this system to reduce our network's carbon footprint and support local solar energy.
