We will begin the inclusion of this new technology as a multiple small business for supply of fresh potable water to be sold in low income houses at sea shores. In the DR potable water is very expensive.

Portable system that can be used at farmers near sea shore or other water sources, to produce potable water for human needs. Competed energy independent, via renewable solar energy and flexible photovoltaic panels of 200 watts capacity, can produce 25 GPD from sea water > 3% salts to 300 ppm solids content.

How does your innovation work?
Solar energy will produce electric power to operate a Reverse Osmosis system, which has a pressure recuperation (exhaust pressure from RO membrane helps the pressure pump). It’s expected to recuperate 85% of pressure needed, making system very efficient and therefore increasing production, that 200 watt solar panel can produce 25 GPD.

Stage 4: Transition to Scale

We have done all field research in order to show workabilty of the system. We done work at several country side locations, such as mountain and the sea shoe to implement the system. Produce 25 GPD with a portable flexible photovolatic solar collector. (200 watts power) The RO system worked very well in all conditions.

Problem

Good drinking potable water (DPW) is difficult to get and expensive in the DR.

}

Solution

Our intention is to supply a self-contained system of DPW using solar PV panels, plus an osmosis with recuperation, that could produce at RD$20 instead of the RD$70 that the locals have to pay for a 5 gallon bottle.

Target Beneficiaries

First the owners of the DPW equipment, that will be installed in their roof tops and be able to create a small business as suppliers of potable water, and finally the consumers in their neighborhood that can receive good quality water, using a renewable energy source, in this case solar energy. Each machine is capable of producing 25 gallons per day.

Mission and Vision

In order to promote our sales of the built systems, we will create a rental business to small houses, which will be interested in selling potable water in low income neighbourhoods that at present are buying at market price, too expensive for them, at a substantial reduced price.

Competitive Advantage

We expect to introduce it as a commercial system, with promotion at all possible levels. Our innovation has the advantage of small scale adaptability, which can be portable and used at remote and needed places such as refugees centres worldwide. With our system, you combine energy supply and end product (potable water) at the needed location.

Planned Goals and Milestones

We intend to establish a small manufacturing plant to assemble 10 units per month in the Dominican Republic. We have the physical infrastructure warehouse to build them, (180 m2) plus the legal incorporated company TERMOSAG to begin the production and sales of the equipment in the DR.


Building of bigger capacity system will be envisioned, for institutional interties, such as hotels, hospitals, restaurants, etc.
