In terms of funding, ZPower is well down the road. Having produced dozens of prototypes, we now have working models that easily demonstrate our technological breakthrough, and show that there are no hidden power sources driving them. To see our proof of concept generator produce several hundred watts of power for hours staggers the imagination and compels one to speculate on the potential impact the technology will have on every facet of life.
Moving things forward:
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 are now ready to commence work on the 50 Kilowatt module. This is the building block upon which we will build our flagship product: the 1 Megawatt Power Plant.
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

With additional capital, ZPower will produce the first 1 Megawatt (MW) Power Plant. This unit will be housed in a custom-made 20 foot cargo container, and will contain twenty 50 KW generators working together to produce one million watts of electricity. One of these 1 MW Power Plants delivers sufficient power to run a small town of five 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, acquiring equipment and staffing.
- Develop various configurations of the 1 MW Power Plant and its modules to pre-manufacture stage.
- Full UL safety and certification testing.
- Expand Product Line: 1 MW (20' container) and larger.
- Setup and begin low-volume manufacturing.
- Initial Global IP Protection.
- Configuring and testing the 1 MW Power Plants in a live setting with an existing utility companies.
Since it is estimated that the 1 MW Power Plant will be ready for small scale manufacturing in 12 months, this opens the doors to our next phase: Proliferation.
The Future: Global Proliferation
The world is our oyster...
Once 1 MW Power Plants are available for demonstration, the world will "beat a path to our door." ZPower already has commitments for Power Purchase Agreements (PPA). Once executed, these PPAs are easily monetized for the necessary funds to build the required number of units for each project.
Domestic Needs First
Governors from several of the States have recently confirmed their united intent to reduce dependence on fossil fuels, improve the environment, and do so without negatively impacting their economies. A bold stance without ZPower to assist them achieve their goal.
Stackable, the 1 MW Power Plants minimize land requirements, eliminate the environmental impact, and run night and day to produce the needed electricity.
With proper introductions, ZPower can confront these tough issues head-on and work together with existing utilities and State government agencies to achieve goals far in advance of existing alternatives. ZPower is ahead of the curve.
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 exactly that!
And without covering the landscape with panels.
