Moses West

Founder of AWG Contracting and Water Rescue, The Moses West Foundation

Moses West is the Founder and owner of AWG Contracting. Mr West combines a very unique background as a prior member of the United States Armed Forces where he is an esteemed member of the 75th Ranger Regiment, the Second Armored Division, the Second Infantry Division, the Seventh Cavalry Regiment and the 101st Airborne Division. The experiences of military deployment provided Mr. West with unique appreciation for the value of water and his advanced technical skills, thus propelling him into his lifelong mission of producing the leading edge of the most advanced technology to produce water from air. AWG Contracting under the guidance of Mr. West has successfully completed deployments of large AWG Units to Puerto Rico, and recently to Flint, Michigan providing an extremely pure and unlimited source of free water to the residents all on donations. The mission to Puerto Rico was the first time that any technology such as this has even been powered by solar energy. Mr. West is currently developing new methods of implementation of his technology to include social responsibility and ownership of local water, food and energy production based around the science of centralized "point specific" water production from the atmosphere.
