Electricity. A commodity taken for granted in most countries and modern cities today. However, it is not only unreliable in many places today but often inexistent.
Our multi-cultural and overseas experience, combined with a passion to help others have become the catalyst to a vision for infrastructure development to empower communities around the world.
In 2012, a meeting with the founder of a non-profit organization focused on promoting, training and encouraging indigenous populations in the Amazon Rainforest led to a partnership to design and install solar energy solutions for two medical centres in remote communities deep in the jungle.
Seeing the social impact that our projects are having in many communities, our vision is to partner with organizations engaged in similar community-driven projects and help provide energy solutions that are affordable, modular, adaptive and connected.
