Our Beliefs

Every century a few technological advances occur that represent a paradigm-shift in the way the economy and general business work. Afterwards it seems obvious. But before, often right up to the tipping point, it is not obvious to anyone but a small segment of the population who “get it” in time to help implement the change and profit from it. Steam engines, railroads, electricity powering lights and petroleum fueling cars; later, personal computers and the internet.

When the inflection point comes, there are four stages:

  • first they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, and then they join you

The team at PRG strongly - and personally and passionately - believes that the inflection point is near.  The backbone of our emerging energy framework will be distributed generation from waste resources.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss how to get from conceptualizing a superior, forward-thinking plan to successfully implementing a profitable installation that uses waste to create energy.
