LEAPFROGGING OVER ENTRENCHED 20TH CENTURY TECHNOLOGIES

We are helping rural communities leapfrog over the old technologies of the 20th century and land in the renewable clean energy of the 21st.


New technologies utilize free local renewable energy sources without “addiction” to expensive fuel or creating massive grid structures. Green energy for individuals, families and villages decreases their reliance on wood, charcoal and costly fossil fuels while reducing health risks from smoke and exhaust. We support local entrepreneurs who can quickly serve off-grid customers with modern clean-energy technologies such as solar cookers, solar panels, solar lamps and wind generators.  We also fund energy efficiency devices.
