Flexfarmd is making renewable energy cheap, accessible and easy for small and large producers to build and manage their own microgrids.
We've identified a niche between large corporate utilities and expensive small-scale renewable generation, where costs, skills, forecasting discourage many would-be renewable energy producers from beginning projects. By offering kits for small-scale, and a crowdsourced collaboration platform to connect supporters with producers, Flexfarmd provides a venue for harnessing the power of many small producers into a collective force that can compete with huge utilities.
Leveraging skills learning building projects like this fleet tracker and other ML-based predictive maintenance and forecasting applications, we've built a scalable platform for building, managing, and optimizing renewable energy projects. Using Rails for the back end, Nuxt for the front end, and leveraging amazing open source projects for both real-time like Supabase and time-series like TimescaleDB, as well as Rust for embedded hardware, we've built a real-time platform for running small and large renewable projects.
