The first-ever renewable energy system with integrated storage

Edisun delivers dispatchable solar electricity 24/7 at prices less than fossil fuels

Edisun delivers dispatchable solar electricity 24/7 at prices less than fossil fuels

Our Vision

We are rethinking distributed solar power from the ground-up to meaningfully contribute to the world's efforts to minimize reliance on fossil fuels.

About Edisun

Since inception Edisun Microgrids has developed a suite of patented technologies that solve big problems facing the solar industry, such as high costs, lack of storage, and problems caused by intermittent generation.

By solving these, Edisun can drive down the cost of solar to a level that competes with conventional power generation. We believe this will be the catalyst to the widespread, global adoption of solar.

Our Technology

Edisun generates dispatchable clean electricity without the need for water, natural gas or traditional turbine technology
Sun Energy
We collect the sun's energy...
Thermal Reservoir
and store it in a thermal reservoir...
Thermal Energy Day and Night
then produce electricity from the thermal energy day and night.

Edisun Competitive Advantages

  • First-ever on-demand renewable energy
  • Lower cost than fossil fuels and dramatically lower cost than solar PV panels + batteries
  • Only renewable generation technology that absorbs excess power from the grid, wind, and other sources and returns it when needed
  • Strong, proven, patented technology
  • Edisun power plants are completely pre-fabricated in the factory, and show up complete in a shipping container, requiring only on-site assembly versus a full engineering and construction project
  • Modular building block allows small or large installations, including off-grid
  • Edisun has no dangerous chemicals, no hazardous materials, no high pressures, and operation is completely silent and clean
