About renewable
These projects create the infrastructure needed to generate renewable energy harnessed from natural resources like the sun or wind. Once these sources are in place, they become a permanent source of clean energy.
How it works
  • Project Developer and community stakeholders invest in the project to fund it's installation 
  • Local college grads and community members are provided jobs to run and maintain the wind turbines 
  • The electricity generated from the tubines is fed to the local energy grid, displacing the need for fossil fuel generated electricity
