Devidayal refrigerator (DDSF-100) was a finalist in the 2019 Global LEAP Awards for Outstanding Off-Grid Refrigerators and won the Consumer Affordability Prize. CLASP conducted independent testing and evaluation on the performance and quality of Devidayal Pedestal Fan (SR-DC-BL01) in 2019 and found that it was approximately 50% more efficient than the market average.
