An interview with Prasoon Kumar

  [embed][/embed]   What if solar panels not only powered homes – but also paid for them, too? The company BillionBricks is building solar home communities (solar farms, with homes built underneath them) that can do just that. BillionBricks CEO Prasoon Kumar says his company challenged themselves to build solar communities that “produce about 40 times more energy than what the community would consume,” and then “push that energy out into the grid.” In this Impact Interview, we take a deep dive into BillionBrick’s mission to tackle the growing homelessness problem and provide sustainable housing innovations for a region that desperately needs them.
