As principal founder of the Clean Coalition, Craig Lewis has spearheaded the drive to create resilient, reliable, redundant and sustainable energy grid solutions that are available NOW. Craig studied industrial-scale solar energy deployment in Germany, when that country brought renewables-driven energy resilience to their entire electrical grid.

These micro-grids not only generate power locally, where it is needed, they keep generating the energy needed to support core emergency services in times of disaster.
