Motivo HARVEST Build and India Deployment Video

Motivo's HARVEST is a mobile energy solution for agriculture that Motivo designed, built and deployed in low production volumes. It decreases operating expenses for farmers by more than 60% when compared to a diesel tractor.

HARVEST collects power from solar panels, wind turbines, or intermittent electrical grids, stores that power in an on-board battery, then delivers it on-demand. HARVEST is flexible, extensible, and scalable. One HARVEST unit can plow a field, power a home, take goods to market, and pump water, all in the same day. Users can easily attach rotary power implements or plug in electric power tools for additional functionality. HARVEST power modules can be tied together to form a micro-grid with scaled up output capability. HARVEST is both a “Swiss Army knife” for agricultural power, and a platform for local innovation.
