Emissions reduction at thousands of sites before typical projects connect to grid:
Three years from now, with battery prices half of today, we will install across thousands of sites, significantly increasing solar use, while reducing gas use to absolute minimum. Increased solar use and emissions reduction begins as each installation directly connects to an energy consumer (not the grid), while typical projects are sitting in queues for 3-7 years before grid connection.
Likewise, by targeting rural and under-served communities as the initial recipients, initial deployment can guarantee that learning and economic development outcomes are concentrated in disadvantaged communities.
Communities become lead developers and implementers of these disruptive and scalable models and technologies. Some of the communities will become hubs of hub-and-spoke scaling models.
Each network of initial recipients requires unique partners to achieve speed and scale.
ReachScale consortiums choose partners like the World Conference of Mayors headquartered in Tuskegee, Alabama and AIHEC, the national network of tribal colleges, to reach these first customers. Their investments enable them to lead in the transition.
From these disruptive efforts scale continues:
Add critical partners to support speed and scale across all the sectors and geographies focused on black/brown/tribal communities.
Introduce the first technology designed to maximize benefits of community involvement: Community Design At-Scale.
Build scale consortiums in concert with talented leaders from each community.
In order to reach the level that solves the problems.
