The Nice-based cleantech startup OGHJI, which is developing a digital, connected, and eco-responsible electrical panel, has announced the completion of its €1.2 million funding round, following a €1.3 million funding round from private investors in June 2023.

OGHJI’s digital disjunction technology has successfully passed the critical stage of laboratory testing. the company is preparing to develop its smart and connected electrical panel. The single-phase and three-phase versions of this panel, as well as the first associated services and home automation integrations, are currently under development.
