The concept behind Epiphany Solar Water Systems (SWS) began in 2005 when Tom Joseph and Henry Wandrie first conceived of a simple and inexpensive method of distilling water with concentrated solar energy. After receiving seed funding from Innovation Works (a PA Ben Franklin Technology Partner) in 2009, a team of diverse and highly skilled individuals was secured to undergo the project. Among them are experts in solar energy, design, manufacturing, marketing, and business management.
During its early years, Epiphany completed fabrication of various successful beta units with extensive field testing. During early 2014, pilot production of final product began and initial customer deliveries commenced.
Epiphany is currently seeking additional funding to ramp to full scale production and market launch in 2016. This will allow Epiphany to reach operational profitability within 24 months. Key use of funds include: manufacture and deployment of water purification units, establishment of distributor agreements, and all necessary marketing and PR required to achieve maximum market penetration.
