Our current projects include:

  • OZFund, Inc. We are a community-focused property developer with a mission to create affordable rental accommodation and convenience/grocery store in ‘ Federal Qualified Opportunity Zones (FQOZ)’. A FQOZ is an economically distressed community where new investments, under certain conditions, may be eligible for preferential tax treatment. They are designed to spur economic development and job creation in distressed communities. Our first project of 52 apartments and a convenience/grocery store is underway in Lancaster, PA.
  • Ocean Thermal Energy Corporation – Our lead project is a primer on how we can face our future sustainably. We are in the process of designing and developing a commercial-grade Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) system, capable of using the temperature gradient of the ocean to produce electricity to power an entire community. The world’s first commercial OTEC system will produce entirely fossil-fuel-free energy and freshwater for a healthy, growing community.
  • Ocees International, Inc. – OCEES International, Inc. is a 21-year-old renewable energy company incorporated in ​2001. Our Engineers worked on a research and development system at the Natural Energy of Hawaii Authority (NELHA), that proved Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion (OTEC) can produce green energy and desalinated seawater without the use of fossil fuels. The technology delivers base-load (24/7) renewable energy and is financially viable at scale. Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) credentials with the US Government allow us to apply for agency incentives, grants, financing and contracting opportunities.  

We welcome inquiries from all businesses that need help and assistance.
