BORG - SOLAR POWER PLANT
WHO ARE WE?

The BORG story began over a decade ago in NASA’s Heliophysics Science Laboratory in Washington DC, USA. Extensive Research and Development created a revolutionary product line-up of alternative energy options based on smart on and off-grid technologies. Now headquartered in Houston, Texas, where our in-house design team and state-of-the-art assembly lines are based, we are committed to making alternative green power a way of life across the world. All our products are CE, ISO, UL and IEL certified, and tested by all international quality standards. With a presence in North America, Europe, South Africa, China and South East Asia, BORG is proud to unveil its Astra Home Series range, specially developed and customized to meet the needs of Indian Households.

 
ASTRA - A POWER PLANT, NOT JUST A POWER BACK-UP

Unlike inverters and other power back-up systems, BORG products are Micro Solar Power Plants - meaning that they can be a primary source of electricity generation in your home, reducing your dependence on and consumption of state-supplied power. This means greater independence for you and your family – from erratic electricity supply, power cuts and excessive electricity bills. All power generated by your Astra Plant comes completely free of cost.

 
HOW DOES IT WORK?

Solar Power is the conversion of sunlight into electrical energy, using either a direct method known as photovoltaics (PV) or indirectly using concentrated solar power. It is environmentally-friendly, easy to harness, and can be seamlessly incorporated into your regular power consumption using the BORG Astra Home Series. The Only differences you will note are the increased reliability and reduced bills.


BORG Astra power plants are intelligent smart grid systems that generate your own electricity using solar power. When the solar output power is greater than the required load power, the intelligent hybrid power controller will deliver the excess power to charge the battery. When the electricity generated is less than required, it will take only the differential excess power rewuirement from the grid. Thus, the system efficiently manages solar power, saving on energy bills, while contributing to greener environment.

 

BORG Astra is an intelligent device that requires no monitoring, and has an online protection function, friendly alarm system and no-load auto shutdown.
