Teleficient -Sierra Leone

Project Launch Date: 8/1/2018

The KWHCoin Renewable Energy Network is excited to announce the first adoption of the KWHCoin as a method of payment for electricity and renewable energy with its partnership with Teleficient.

Teleficient has distributed over 6000 “pay as you go” energy systems in Sierra Leone with plans to install over 50,000 systems.With 80% of its population off grid, Sierra Leone has unique energy challenges with a sparse rural population and lacking a centralized grid to deliver reliable energy services. There were friction points for Teleficient related to manual payment processing, fraud risks, and overall customer experience which made KWHCoin a viable option to partner for efficiency and network development.

This marks an impressive milestone for the KWHCoin project as it relates to adoptability of the KWHCoin. The KWHCoin will be used as “payment method” representing the value measurement of the ecosystem. The project has a commitment of 50,000 systems currently but KWHCoin, in partnership with Teleficient, are actively making plans to scale the systems and make them accessible to the entire Sierra Leone population of 7.7 million people.

“This is a watershed for the KWHCoin global community and team. We have the adoption of our coin as a method of payment for electricity in Sierra Leone which is a tremendous milestone but more importantly positions KWHCoin for mass adoption as a medium of exchange for energy services to an addressable market that is in the billions in Africa and areas globally without reliable grid services,” states KWHCoin CEO Girard Newkirk.

Nurses in Hand (NIH)-Kenya

Project Launch Date: 7/1/2018

Nurses in Hand (NIH) is a social enterprise providing post-crash emergency response along Kenya’s Road Network, covering 800 miles of roadway from the Kenyan coast to Uganda.

NIH is leveraging technology to be efficient and effective in responding to road accidents in Kenya, with the possibility to scale up to East and Central Africa and other emerging economies. Through the NIH Emergency Response Web and Mobile solution, an alert is sent from either a mobile phone, or a crash-alert device. This device is fitted in public, private or transit vehicles.

The energy to launch this project will be entirely green from the solar panels that power the containers which will be placed alongside the road to serve as temporary triage/command center to all the vehicles that will be used to transport.

Under the MOU, KWHCoin will support NIH in establishing renewable energy resources for medical stations, develop a token model as a reward for renewable energy generation, and develop a structure for installing energy efficient mobile units throughout Kenya’s road network.

“With our projects in Sierra Leone, Kenya and Puerto Rico the KWHCoin is the method of payment for renewable energy and can also be paired with local currencies ( in the case of Nurses in Hand project in Kenya). The KWHCoin will have an adoption and user platform that will exceed 100,000 by the fall.

Puerto Rico-Orocovis

Project Launch Date: 5/22/2018

KWHCoin the blockchain based renewable energy company is heading to Puerto Rico to launch its genesis renewable energy project on the island. The project intends to use cryptocurrency as a liberation technology and is applying its unique token model in Puerto Rico. The KWHCoin team is scheduled to conduct formal house selection and connection analysis while developing the scope of the project locations in Puerto Rico. The team has assigned 10 homes for immediate deployment to test reliability, assess site recommendations and to determine scalability. The team will be on the island May 20–24 to meet with local officials and begin first stages of operational deployment of the genesis energy project.

Orocovis is the site for the genesis development project in Puerto Rico and will serve as the model for the technical and development resources needed for KWHCoin to provide energy services to remote locations globally. Orocovis is located in the Central Mountain Range, north of Villalba and Coamo; south of Morovis and Corozal; southeast of Ciales; east of Jayuya; and west of Barranquitas. Orocovis and its remote population of over 300 homes present a unique challenge for traditional energy service platforms but is a perfect fit for the KWHCoin model which focuses on empowering the edges of the grid.

Orocovis with its central location in the island and rugged terrain presents unique grid challenges but KWHCoin is deploying its team to work out the logistics and coordinate project details with local officials. KWHCoin made agreements with local officials in Orocovis for blockchain exploration back in March and are now actively deploying the technical and operational resources to launch immediate energy access for residents in the area.
