We examine each potential location for an ImpactSite very carefully. Distance to the national power grid, distance to a paved road, population, distance between homes, country-specific regulations, and affordability all play important roles.
In a first step, we use satellite imagery to estimate the size, population and layout of the community. The next step is then to visit the village in person with our technical and communications teams. The technicians take a close look at the conditions as well as generators, solar panels, etc. that private or business people are already using. Our communications team begins with initial surveys to determine the specific electricity needs of the community and thus the required size of our system. Also, the demandfor our ImpactProducts for cooling, water treatment, and internet is best assessed by talking directly with potential customers.
