Power Development International, Inc.


PDI utilizes its proprietary hydrokinetic technology to develop power projects in slower moving water, where other companies either can't generate power or compete economically. This IP, combined with PDI's years of experience in hydropower development, create a formidable barrier to the competition, and allows PDI to develop projects with risk-adjusted rates of return superior to any other form of new generating capacity available today.
