Powering Communities with Renewable Energy When Disaster Strikes

In 2021, the U.S. spent $145 Billion on weather disasters. Natural disasters are occurring 3x more often than 50 years ago and 2022 will be another record year for multi-billion-dollar weather disasters in the U.S.

Key Facts

Learn more about the power and versatility of Sesame Solar's Nanogrid.

How much power can a Nanogrid produce and store?

Nanogrids can produce between 3-20 kW of solar power, with total battery storage of 15-150 kWh. Engineered to meet peak and average use and provide uninterrupted, sustainable power.  

How many homes can a Nanogrid power?

An average U.S. home draws 20-24 kW of power in a day, so a single Sesame Solar Nanogrid can power 4-6 houses. A cluster of 3 Sesame Solar Nanogrid Solutions could power 12-18 houses.

How much CO2 emissions can a Nanogrid save?

The 10 metric tons of CO2 emission savings in a year from daily use of one Sesame Solar Solutions (40 kWh) is equivalent to GHG emissions from driving an average gasoline powered vehicle for 30,000 miles. The average U.S. driver drives approximately 10,000 miles per year so that’s like saving the GHG emissions from 3 cars.  

How many laptops can a Nanogrid power?

The energy stored in each Sesame Solar Nanogrid in a day can charge over 650 laptops and 2,500 phones.

How much water can a Nanogrid provide?

Sesame Solar Nanogrids can provide 132 gallons/500 liters of potable water per day.

Learn How to Get Tax Credits

As part of the Inflation Reduction Act, Sesame Solar Nanogrids qualify for 30% tax credits and/or direct payments. If deployed in disadvantaged communities or tribal nations, tax credits and/or direct payments may increase up to 50%.
