Bringing Power to
the People in Need




About a year ago, a consortium of three Long Island companies got together with the idea of supplying power systems to parts of the world where there are shortages.

What gave the group hope is that last year it had built six U-Haul-sized electricity-generating stations and shipped them to Haiti. Another nine were expected to go to Haiti by the end of this week.

Now, the consortium -- Dynamic Supplier Alignment of Selden, Nextek Power Systems of Bohemia, and Vision Quest Lighting of Ronkonkoma -- is working on a package of deals with governments to ship about 2,500 advanced power systems. Some 2,000 would go to the Republic of Senegal in Western Africa, about 300 to Nigeria and another 225 to Haiti.

Ron Tabbitas, president of Dynamic Supplier, said if all the units are shipped over the next several years, the work could be worth as much as $50 million in sales.

George Hochbrueckner, a former Democratic congressman from Coram, arranged to bring Vision Quest into the consortium to manufacture the systems. Hochbrueckner also helped secure $1.2 million in state tax credits for the company, which is required to create 50 new jobs to receive the credits. Hochbrueckner is a consultant to Vision Quest.

"There will be no shortages of places [around the world] that could use this technology," Hochbrueckner said. The systems are trucked to "off-grid" rural areas to power cellphones, computers and portable devices.

Larry Lieberman, Vision Quest's president, said he is looking to expand his 18,000-square-foot facility and add at least 25 employees to the 34 he has now. "We expect to deliver 100 units a month," Lieberman said. "This would be a big thing."

DSA Announces Solar Product Shipment to Africa

press release

Dynamic Supplier Alignment (DSA℠) a Long Island based business model that aims to leverage the regions strength in technology based design, development and manufacturing has shipped the first of its solar platforms known as STAR™ to
the African country of Ghana for demonstration to government officials.

“The concept behind DSA is simple “said Mike Rubino Vice President of Strategic Development for DSA, “we are much stronger when we operate together and capitalize on Long Islands many talents. In this case we brought together a strong local manufacturer Vision Quest Lighting, the design talents of Nextek Power Systems, Inc. and the international sales presence of Chicago based Weldy-Lamont to score our success.

“The STAR™ Product is a custom designed and Long Island produced system that will enable developing countries to use the benefits of solar technology to rapidly expand its ability to deliver power to underpowered or off grid rural areas “ Rubino went on to say “by harnessing the advantages of solar power in mobile form we see STAR™ as being both a breakthrough technology for our customers and value opportunity to our partners and the region.

The STAR™ Product which was developed with critical early support and funding from the globally recognized IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) , is a trailer system equipped with solar panels that comes with up to 80 portable battery packs which can provide light  and power for  an average household for up to 3 days. The concept enables the delivery of power to off grid and rural areas where an on-off light switch is not yet reality. There are five (5) variations of STAR™ with the purpose of supplying electrical demand to a community, school, hospital, clinic,  police station and business as well as a variation for telecommunication towers.

Recent stops for DSA and its partners included participation in the TED X Detroit on October 26 (, and the 1st International Off-grid Renewable Energy Conference in Ghana. ( ). Upcoming events are shared participation ,with its partner Vision Quest Lighting, in the rescheduled Stony Brook AERTC sponsored Advanced Energy Conference in New York City which was postponed owing to Hurricane Sandy. DSA will release the new dates as soon as they become available.

DSA℠ ( is a unique business model which is being implemented by a group of Long Island entrepreneurs that aims to take advantage of the shifting nature of responsibilities within the supply chain.  DSA provides infrastructure, financing, marketing, and distribution for clean tech products and systems targeting home efficiency and renewable energy technologies ##

LI Companies Helping Repower Haiti

Some Long Island companies have gotten together to help provide more electrical power in Haiti.


Within the next three years, as many as 1,000 U-Haul-sized electricity generating stations will be in quake-ravaged Haiti, allowing businesses and residents of the island nation that is severely short on power to charge cellphones, computers and other portable devices, thanks to a Long Island consortium.


Dynamic Supplier Alignment, a Bohemia-based business developer started 18 months ago by a technology executive and current Dowling College and St. Joseph's College adjunct professor of business Ron Tabbitas, helped put together the consortium that last week shipped six of the 1.5kw solar-powered stations to Haiti.


Tabbitas said that as many as 1,000 such stations will be
in that country in the next three years. Tabbitas said DSA
is hoping to create an industry on Long Island that supplies power to parts of the world where there are shortages.


Liang Downey, director of digital applications for Nextek Power Systems, a company in Detroit with some employees in Bohemia, said she attended an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers conference last year where she heard about the organization's efforts to help restore power in Haiti. She said her boss, Paul Savage, wanted to help.


Dynamic Supplier helped Nextek arrang space at Telegence Manufacturing Incubator, a company in Bohemia, where the six stations were built a few months ago.


Wayne Gutschow, Nextek's engineering vice president in Bohemia, said the company donated engineering time, and the materials were purchased by a variety of social and economic agencies, including IEEE. Sirona Cares Foundation, which helps rebuild economies worldwide, has also raised funds to repower Haiti.


"It's a humanitarian effort," said Downey.


But it will also help create businesses in Haiti, said Tabbitas. Haitians using the generators will pay a $10 monthly fee to
a franchise that will operate the electricity-generating stations. Government and private aid is available to help with those payments. Dynamic Supplier Alignment said in an announcement that such franchisees could potentially
earn $1,000 a month through supplying electricity.


"We built it all here," Tabbitas said.
