I chose as someone who is inventing creative, sustainable ways to power our everyday lives. He is from the poorest state in India, where eighty five percent of people do not have access to electricity. Although, he grew up very underprivileged and in an unsafe environment, he found a way to save enough money to get to California and studied electrical engineering. Being in the United States, he quickly realized how much energy is wasted everyday and wanted to find a solution for that, along with a way to give power back to his homeland. He invented and established the Husk Power System, creating energy from rice husks, which are normally thrown into land fills. Already 60 rice husk power plants are up and running, serving 60 villages and 150,000 people. In ten years the company hopes to be in ten to fifteen countries, serving 10-20 million people.
