California’s diminishing reservoirs…

Lack of rain isn’t helping.

High temperatures are not helping.

Plastic shade balls may help somewhat with reducing evaporation.

But let’s get to the bottom of the problem. Our reservoirs need more water. Waiting for it to rain seems like an awful waste of time. Time that Californian’s do not have, when some have no water from their taps at all.

Why not actually do something about it that can make a difference, right now? Why not set up an industrial atmospheric water generator, or even a small/large water station, and install a solar array? Free water from the air everyday (after up front costs). Why not pump thousands, or tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, or even millions of liters of water into depleted reservoirs, and start replenishing some of what the state needs.

And this isn’t just California… Texas needs water, Jamaica needs water, Brazil needs water, India needs water… This is a global problem. With solutions at your fingertips, choose to be part of the solution now. Save the earth, save lives.

USC Filmmakers Highlight The Human Side Of California Drought

It’s an understatement to say California’s historic drought has been getting an exhaustive amount of news coverage. Local and national media outlets have dedicated countless column inches and primetime slots to detailing the mandatory cutbacks, shaming the communities still maintaining green lawns and discussing the effect of the various crops grown in the state. But more than 900 families in East Porterville, an unincorporated town in California’s Central Valley have been living without water for months, and no one’s really talking about it.

Katie Espejo and Ariel Blandford are trying to change that with As The River Goes, a documentary spotlighting the Americans being hit the hardest by the drought, and exposing the lack of aid they’ve receive Espejo, a recent graduate of the University of California’s School of Cinematic Arts and East Porterville native, used her senior project as an opportunity to draw attention to the crisis crippling her hometown.

Are Water Wars Coming?

In Sao Paulo, the Brazilian government is already preparing for “What if?”. What is the residents are in such a dire need of water that they plan an attack on their local water utility? Their army is already staging scenarios on how to handle such a situation. Role playing for what we all hope is not the inevitable. Can you imagine being so desperate for water that you have to go out and physically fight for it? In Africa alone, women spend billions of hours every year away from their homes and families, just to obtain clean drinking water. The struggles for many are fierce. Even in our home state of California, complete communities are without drinking water. Dwindling aquifers and wells drying up are causing panic situations for a lot of people. With water creation solutions out there, such as atmospheric water generation, communities leaders and governments need to be contacted and asked to use these solutions to solve the problems in their areas. There seems to be a lot of talk, but not a lot action. Preparing for “What if?” now, will prevent “What if?” from happening in the future.

Do you know the important reasons why you need an EcoloBlue Atmospheric Water Generator (AWG)?

1. Do you regularly buy bottled water for your household? Did you know that an average household spends over 4 times as much a year on bottled water, over creating their own water from the air with EcoloBlue? And think of all the plastic bottle waste you are preventing.

2. Are you currently under mandatory water restrictions, and worry about the fate of your urban garden, flower beds, or greenhouse? One of EcoloBlue’s small industrial units can create water every day that you can use for watering your plants.

3. Are you a leader in the green or sustainability community? Do you see the benefits in promoting this technology to teach the future generations that there are solutions to help hydrate people and save the planet from plastic waste?

4. Do you live in a town where you rely on well water, and the wells are drying up? Sounds like you need to create water from the air to supplement your drinking water, and even your entire household’s water supply.

5. Did you know that atmospheric water generators are perfect for military bases around the world. They create water that can be used to fill canteens and water buffalo tanks, and provide the troops with their minimum daily requirement of water. We also offer a 20% military discount on our home/office units.

6. Are you the next city, state or country that will suffer from a debilitating drought? Be proactive and think to what you can do to help prevent this. EcoloBlue’s water station can provide millions of liters of water every day. Speak with your local agencies and government officials to let them know that this is the solution they need to look at.

7. Did you know that with our patented soda model, you can create sparkling water and turn it into soda or healthy sparkling beverages? Think of all the money you will save by not purchasing soda for your household. See some recipe ideas here: LINK

8. What happens when there is a natural disaster and everyone then rushes to the store to fill their carts with bottled water? Sometimes you arrive to empty shelves. If you can make your own water from the air with EcoloBlue using electricity (if you still have it), a backup generator, or solar, you will be all set. Aid agencies can turn to our A.C.E. Containers for larger scale solutions.

9. Are you an athlete that drinks a lot of water when you train or compete? Did you know that EcoloBlue water is 99.9% pure? Perfect for keeping your body hydrated and healthy.

10. Have you ever wanted to live off-grid, or have an eco-friendly vacation cabin? Running a home/office unit on solar is the perfect solution for your drinking water supply.

Sky H2O and EcoloBlue form Strategic Alliance to deliver world-class utility-scale Atmospheric Water Generation Projects in the USA

Together Sky H2O and EcoloBlue have designed a fast-track Atmospheric Water Generation (“AWG”) solution starting at 500 AF per year that can deliver fresh potable water to communities and businesses across the Western USA

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (BUSINESS WIRE) JUNE 15, 2015, Sky H2O, Inc. (“SkyH2O”), a utility-grade water generating systems developer and independent water provider (“IWP”) today announced a strategic alliance EcoloBlue to accelerate the deployment of utility-scale AWG’s projects across the USA. This AWG industry collaboration is specifically structured to assist water stressed communities and businesses to address challenges caused by the ongoing draught conditions in California and the Western United States.

SkyH2O has partnered with EcoloBlue to integrate their unique, patented and proven atmospheric water technology and products into SkyH2O AWG projects. SkyH2O’s AWG systems enjoy a +25 year life expectancy, with minimal maintenance, and have minimal environmental impact. AWG systems can be deployed in a distributed manner, specifically where water is needed most including at or near existing reservoir infrastructure enabling independence and self-reliance. “EcoloBlue is a pioneer in the fast evolving AWG industry and has developed world-class technology and products. Working with EcoloBlue allows us to provide our customers with the very best AWG projects,” said Alexander von Welczeck, CEO of SkyH2O.

SkyH2O’s pre-engineered fast-track AWG systems are uniquely designed for the Western USA that begin at about 500 AF (acre foot) per year capacity with a foot print in the approximate size of a football field and can be modularly expanded to +50,000 AF per year. The process begins with an on-site 30+ day Feasibility Study and Project Assessment that utilizes our AWS-003 mobile demonstration system, followed by permitting and an about 6-month EPC construction period. “SkyH2O’s professional team has proven experience in water, clean energy, infrastructure, technology and project development and financing. Their home-grown local know-how to rapidly deliver utility-grade atmospheric water generation (“AWG”) projects in the Western USA and operational expertise is unique and unmatched in the AWG marketplace, and management’s ability to team with the best EPC contractors to develop the highest quality AWG projects speaks to the strengths of their internal processes,” said Wayne Ferreira, CEO of EcoloBlue.

Utility-scale AWG project costs begin at about $12 million. As an IWP (independent water producer) SkyH2O will sell water to well qualified customers at wholesale water prices under a long-term Water Purchase Agreements (“WPA”) in many Western USA locations including coastal, inland and even desert.
