Silicon Valley executive offers to pay to have innovative panels which convert sunlight and air into clean water installed at homes in Tulare, Fresno, Kern and Monterey counties
PALO ALTO, CALIF. – An Arizona company is offering to install its unique technology converting air and sunlight into potable water at 1,000 homes in underserved communities across the drought-stricken Central Valley.
Source Global, a public benefit corporation, dedicated to innovative drinking water solutions, is asking families in migrant communities in the counties of Tulare, Fresno, Monterey and Kern making less than $65,000 per year to apply for a free program to install its patented hydropanels at their homes. The counties were selected for the high numbers of communities lacking clean drinking water based on monitoring done by the California State Water Resources Control Board. Tulare County has the largest number of systems without safe drinking water, according to local nonprofit Community Water Center. The most common contaminants found in these water systems are arsenic, nitrate, lead, copper, uranium, and E. coli. Families wanting to apply for the program can do so at source.co/ccv.
