ZPower has produced dozens of prototypes (producing 100 watts to 400 kilowatts of energy), and we have working models that easily demonstrate our technological breakthrough, and show that there are no hidden power sources driving them. Viewing our demonstration model producing several hundred watts of power for hours staggers the imagination.
We've completed the Seed Money phase confirming the practicality of our theories, and we have completed our Angel phase from which prototypes and working demonstrations models easily show how we have harnessed the sun's energy in a revolutionary way. We're ready to complete our 50 Kilowatt Power Block (size of 4-foot cube). This is the building block upon which we will build our flagship product: the 1 Megawatt Power Plant (size of 20-foot container).
Testing by independent labs and certification by Underwriter's Laboratories (UL) will be completed shortly, verifying the breakthrough nature of this energy generation method; and that all life, health and safety issues are verified for benign electricity generation.
Where Are We Headed?
1 Megawatt Power Plant
Conceptual 1 Megawatt Power Plant (size of a 20 foot container)
ZPower's flagship product is a 1 Megawatt (MW) Power Plant. This unit will be housed in a custom-made 20 foot cargo container, and will contain twenty 50 KW Power Blocks working together to produce one million watts of electricity. The ZPower 1 MW Power Plants delivers sufficient power for two hundred homes.

This major advancement is not as big an undertaking as one might think. Our existing models and demonstration units confirm the practicality of the 1 MW Power Plant - it's just a matter of completion. Hiring the necessary experts in certain fields is critical to this phase, and those individuals are already known and committed to the project.
Here's what we envision will be undertaken in this phase:
- Setup Laboratory
- Develop the 50 KW Power Blocks followed by the 1 MW Power Plant
- Full UL and ETL certification
- Global IP Protection
- Testing of the 1 MW Power Plants in Utility setting
- Pilot Manufacturing
Since it is estimated that the 1 MW Power Plant will be ready for small scale manufacturing in several months, this opens the doors to our next phase: Proliferation.
The Future: Global Proliferation
Once 1 MW Power Plants are available for demonstration, the world will "beat a path to our door."
ZPower has received strong interest in large Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) using our clean and constant energy. Once executed, these PPAs are monetized for the necessary funds to build the required number of 1MW Power Plants for each project.
Every country is either interested in augmenting their access to inexpensive energy sources or they desire a greener approach to energy production. ZPower is the only alternative that can adequately meet the need economically without a huge sacrifice of resource.
Solar is popular, but present solar farms occupy massive areas, are vulnerable to weather and disruptive conditions, and only operate a few hours each day.
Wouldn't it be a revolutionary step forward if the sun could be harnessed 24 hours a day? ZPower does that, and without covering the landscape with panels.
