Lightweight and easily deployed, a single Spark unit can provide 7,570 liters of clean, filtered, potable water per day, enough for up to 1,860 people. Multiple Sparks can sustain a region of significant size and population. Additionally, a Spark generates between 60kWh and 120kWh per day, enough energy to power 40-90 rural households with an average electricity demand of 39kWh per month. Spark can also provide satellite, cellular, or Local Area Network (LAN)-powered communications to provide high-speed internet and phone service anywhere it is needed. One Spark can support up to 254 connected ethernet devices.

By adopting a modular approach, Spark is tailor-made for re-use and re-design to any specification. Units are constructed from military-grade components that have a 15-year life span, making them durable, long-term solutions.
