BoxPower provides off grid communities with an affordable and convenient source of renewable energy generation. BoxPower's first product is a community scale renewable energy system packaged in a 20 foot shipping container. It consists of a solar array wind turbine diesel generator battery bank and intelligent energy management system which can be rapidly deployed using the container as a base and frame. BoxPower's vision is to reduce energy inequality worldwide by providing off grid populations with clean affordable and scalable energy infrastructure beginning with isolated communities on Native American reservations in the United States.
Helpusgreen is a social enterprise that preserves the Ganges River from becoming a religious sewer. Helpusgreen does this by flowercycling (upcycling) the floral waste from temples and mosques that is dumped in the river into patented fertilizer and incense sticks. This in turn provides livelihoods to manual scavenger families in Uttar Pradesh India. Since the Ganges is considered sacred in India cleaning the river not only provides employment to manual scavengers but eliminates the entrenched attitudes and discriminatory practices that still bind families to this degrading occupation. The community benefits from a reduction in disease predictable income social acceptance and most importantly dignity. The project is scalable and brings a hope to revive the Ganges.
