Where there’s a will, there’s water.

Rainmaker’s unique position in the global fresh water market.

Rainmaker’s unique position in the global fresh water market.

Rainmaker’s proven and patented technology is delivered in units that we believe
are the optimum size for the majority of communities in need of fresh water.

Our units deliver from 5,000 to 150,000 liters of water per day per unit. We think
of it as “local size”. We hit the sweet spot with the right combination of volume,
quality, safety, scalability, and price.

Local fresh water, not dependent on other infrastructure.

Delivering fresh water locally means that Rainmaker technology is not dependent on other infrastructure. This speeds up political decision-making. In typical infrastructure projects, paybacks can be decades which discourages investment. In Rainmaker’s case, payback on investment can be less than one year, which is an incentive for governments, NGOs, and other potential customers to act.

Furthermore, Rainmaker will make technology available either as a capital purchase, or on a Water-As-A-Service basis. This flexibility meets the budgeting needs of various governments, corporations and organizations.

Rainmaker technology can be powered by wind, solar, generator, grid, or a combination thereof. This addresses the reality of the market, where regions that are water poor, are often lacking robust electrical grids.

It also addresses the desire to avoid a carbon footprint and CSR obligations.

We occupy the critical middle between too small and too big.

Small-scale fresh water production is generally at a personal size. These are water purifiers with up to 100-liter per day capacity. They are typically, home-based dehumidifiers or similar technology.

The challenges with these small units are many: reliability, general cleaning and maintenance requirements, replacing parts and filters, and in some cases, reliance on a dependable electrical grid.

Rainmaker fits into the medium scale where our units can provide 3,000 – 150,000 liters of fresh water per day. We think of this as local or community size. In this market, there is little competition in terms of capital cost and cost per liter of water.

Large water plants, typically desalination plants are massive infrastructure projects that cost hundreds of millions or billions and take years for planning, approvals and construction. They are best suited for large urban areas, or as in Israel’s case, to supply a large portion of the country’s water requirements.

According to a recent Zurich Insurance report on water scarcity, nearly 78% of the world’s poor live in rural areas.9 This is ideal for the solutions offered by Rainmaker.

Regions with the best wind and temperature conditions for Rainmaker technology.

Markets for our Air-to-Water technologies:

  • Humanitarian applications in traditional areas of fresh water scarcity
  • Island and rural communities with limited fresh water supplies
  • Temporary humanitarian applications in disaster or war zones
  • Growing industrial and commercial applications
  • Corporate CSR programs

Markets for our Water-to-Water technologies:

  • Communities with inadequate or no access to fresh water source or reliable energy source, but close to a significant supply of salty or brackish water
  • Corporations looking for energy-efficient technology to clean and potentially reuse waste water
  • Cities or reginal governments restoring rivers, lakes and harbors

The solution for communities of 200 to 30,000 people.

In our sweet spot of serving communities of 200 to 30,000 people, we offer many distinct competitive advantages including:

  • Cost. Our patented technology means our cost per liter of fresh water is lowest in the category.
  • Capacity. Rainmaker produces more liters per day than most competitors under the same climatic and energy conditions.
  • Choice of sizes. We offer units with water capacity sized to specific market demand.
  • Long-term cost effectiveness. Our units require minimal maintenance and operational expenditure.
  • Choice of power sources. We offer choice of wind, solar, grid, or generator. Others typically offer fewer choices or only grid connections.
  • Set-up time. Deployment as fast as 90 days after purchase order; operational within 14 days after containers arrive on location.
  • Footprint. Our on-the-ground footprint is smaller which means much more flexibility in location.

We don’t compete in the markets for household-size units, or on the other extreme, desalination for cities or countries such as San Diego or Israel.
