Retired U.S. generals Russel L. Honoré (3-star), Dennis Via (4-star), Alonzo Short (3-star) and Brigadier General John Watkins are working with Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions to introduce technology in disaster relief, remote areas.

JACKSON, TN – Clean drinking water, off-grid power and cold storage access will soon arrive in developing nations and remote U.S. areas that need basic resources. Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions will join several American generals to showcase new technology to relief organizations, military forces, and countries in humanitarian crises.

Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions designed a line of six, industrial-grade products that offer off-grid refrigeration, water generation, and power generation. The robust technology pulls moisture from the air and power from the sun to provide relief and infrastructure by supplying clean drinking water, refrigeration and freezing cold storage (to avoid food waste) and renewable power to villages and entire communities.

The retired commanders recently visited Aldelano’s production facility, headquartered in Jackson, Tennessee, and experienced each product firsthand. The generals, who share a combined 14 stars and 200 years of service for our country, were so impressed with the solar technology, they began developing a master plan to model the designs globally. Each officer has coordinated international and local military relief efforts, leading hundreds of troops, affecting countless lives.


Retired Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré, who commanded the military response to Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, immediately thought of his native state, Louisiana. “We’ll put a camera on it that will watch people come and get water in the town of Tallulah, Louisiana … the poorest part of Louisiana where people are drinking brown water! This product is a need,” Honoré said. The team will also present the technology to U.S. ambassadors from various African nations.

Global Weather Oscillations predicts the 2018 hurricane season will be the strongest cycle in 70 years. Aldelano Corporation CEO Al Hollingsworth said now is the time for all nations to prepare. “My wife and I have done missions for decades. We’ve seen despair. We’ve seen disease. We’ve seen death. Our technology was born out of a need for anyone, anywhere to have life’s necessities, harnessed by earth’s natural resources,” said Hollingsworth.

Because of the historic military visit, Aldelano Solar Cold Chain Solutions is searching for municipalities to model the solar designs. If interested, all organizations should email the company at salesservice@aldelano.com and please include the nature and need of the designs in your area. Each jurisdiction will be announced on www.solarcoldbox.com, where you can explore the company’s technology.
