Inspiration to Start Company I am the first person in my family to venture into the entrepreneurial path. My family has traditionally been working class, and my mother retired from her job after 38 years of dedicated service. However, even though she was a worker all her life, she always encouraged me to find something that I like to do and go for it. After a 9-year stint in the Navy, I worked in IT for four years before I got up the nerve to start my own business. I have been an entrepreneur since that time and have even loved its struggles. I discovered my passion a few years back when I realized that our planet was in trouble, but there were things that could be done to help save it. That’s when I discovered renewable-powered microgrids, and I have been on a mission to have them deployed ever since!
