One Community Welcomes Ramya Vudi to the Engineering Team

One Community welcomes Ramya Vudi to the Engineering Team as our newest Volunteer/Consultant!

Ramya-Vudi-640

Bachelor’s Electrical & Electronics Engineering and Certified Engineer in Training: Ramya received her Bachelor’s degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the renowned engineering school, Vellore Institute of Technology, India. Now she is a Master of Science Student in Electric Power at University of Southern California, Los Angeles and a Certified Engineer In Training by the state of California. Coming from a family of power engineers, Ramya grew up understanding the power industry and its challenges. As an undergrad, she developed a passion for power systems; learning all she could about power system technology. This led to work experience with natural gas and coal power plant networks, conducting various case studies on these networks, and realizing that these sources of power are definitely economical and efficient but not reliable as they are exhaustible. Working towards producing “greener electricity” became an obvious next step and Ramya moved to one of the hubs of renewable energy, California. Now she brings awareness about the value of sustainable living as the President of the Energy Club at USC, organizing guest lectures, field trips, workshops, etc. As a member of the One Community team, Ramya brings her knowledge and passion for innovative solutions to the challenges of renewable energy as she is helping with research and design of the overall energy infrastructure and Duplicable City Center electrical and control and automation tie-in specifics.

WELCOME TO THE TEAM RAMYA!

Jump Starting Global Eco-Communities - One Community Weekly Progress Update #198

Open source and free-shared designs are one approach for jump starting global eco-communities. Designs like this can cover all aspects of eco-community establishment and maintenance while also providing templates for stand-alone implementation by individuals too. Comprehensively providing models like this has the potential to influence and stimulate the entire sustainability industry, moving us closer to global sustainability and Highest Good living models for all.

Creating a Cooperative Future – One Community Weekly Progress Update #197

Creating a Cooperative Future - One Community Weekly Progress Update #197

Creating a cooperative future is possible if enough people want it. We can change the societal norms of competition to norms of collaboration if we choose to. One way to achieve sufficient engagement and participation in this idea is to create an open source and free-shared model that demonstrates this on a small-scale while providing a better way of living than the way most people are living now. Such a model, if demonstrated as easy enough and affordable enough, will predictably spread and expand on its own. We are designing this as what we call living and creating for The Highest Good of All.
