Can I buy a Plant-e system?

Yes, new products are added all the time so there is something for everyone. Check out our webshop to see if there is something for you.

Can I make my house more sustainable with power from Plant-e?

Unfortunately, that won't work. Plant-e power is more suitable for small applications such as small lights and sensors.

How sustainable is this electricity actually?

Because we use the waste products of the bacteria, we do not compete with the natural biological processes. Moreover, a plant stores CO2 during its growth, so we make CO2-negative electricity. It really doesn't get any more sustainable.
