Strauss Energy provides electricity to homeowners and organizations at more than 25% cheaper cost than the national grid. The power is generated from the innovative BIPV Stima solar roofing tiles that the company produces and sells at 25% lower cost than what the market is offering traditionally. Strauss uses Compressed Air Technology to store the energy for usage during intermittence and at night as opposed to traditional batteries.

The Technology used by Strauss Energy contributes towards the generation of energy to light up more homes. This reduces the gap between the accessibility and affordability of power.
