    Pledge CA$ 2,500 or more About $1,956

    This pledge is exclusively aimed at companies that manufacture closed-loop solar collector air heaters.

    If your company wants to upgrade or add a control system to your line of CSA or UL approved solar collectors, then this is your opportunity to be the first to market with our Okapi product line.

    For this pledge, we will work with your company to pair up our control system with your line of solar collectors.

    For the pledge amount of $2,500 CAD, you will receive one development Okapi unit equipped with datalogging and troubleshooting capabilities, as well as unlimited consultation for a period of one month.

    This development Okapi system will have extensive data logging capabilities. Therefore, any important findings such as running time, cost to run, heat rise and output values, measure of efficiency, cost savings etc. can be reported in your marketing materials.

    If you want the benefits that Okapi can provide (such as blowing heat out at floor level and intelligent operation based on monitored weather trends) associated with your product then pledge now, before your competitors gain this edge over your company.
