OUR ECOSYSTEM

We work to supply information and pathways that help members of our community realize lasting, meaningful solutions for their energy and resource needs.

The end goal of resolving these needs is reaching a Net-Zero resource state. This means that a balance is achieved between energy used and energy produced by the community. With the right configuration, it’s even possible for a community to produce more energy than it needs, and that surplus can be put towards storage, growth, or other communities in need.
