Containerized solar water farms provide clean water, jobs for locals

More than 2 billion people globally lack access to clean drinking water, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Nonprofit organization GivePower is aiming to reduce that number by using the sun’s energy, shipping containers, desalination technology and local supply chains.

GivePower builds and delivers containerized solar-powered water farms that desalinate salty water.

The organization focuses on areas where “there’s an immediate and growing need for better access to safe water,” Kyle Stephan, vice president of operations at GivePower, told FreightWaves.
