Changing Lives with Clean Energy
Paul Needham, President

Simpa Networks and its 11 employees, has managed to create a “pay-as-you-go” platform for clean energy. This system has made clean energy affordable to a mass market. Needham believes that “protecting our IP provides assurance to those investors that the assets that they’re investing in will generate their required return on investment.” Needham really enjoys the life changing differences he can bring to people, such as bringing light into someone’s home because in India 400 million households lack access to electricity.
