ARDA Power

Startup · DC Microgrids

ARDA Power is a global pioneer of DC Microgrid technology for non-residential buildings. Soon they will roll out the world’s 1st commercial plug-and-play microgrid solution to the market which will make it easy to design and construct a Microgrid in almost any building: on or off grid, with AC and DC loads, and powered by up to 100% renewables.  A battery-centric, DC-connected platform conceived by ARDA engineers with technology originally developed at the University of Toronto makes possible microgrids that are simple, low cost, resilient and versatile. Leading a consortium of US based cleantech development firm, local utility and a German flow battery company, ARDA is commissioning Burlington DC Microgrid project in the headquarters and main manufacturing facility of Etratech in Burlington, Ontario in early 2017.
