In 2011, SunFarmer co-founder Andy Moon was working for a major U.S. solar company when he was approached by the nonprofit Possible Health. Possible, which was started by Yale medical students, was struggling to care for patients with zero electricity at their hospital in a remote corner of Nepal.
Andy teamed up with his former colleague, Jason Gray, to launch SunFarmer in 2012. Through that initial project, Andy and Jason met Nepali engineer and entrepreneur Avishek Malla, now CEO of SunFarmer Nepal.
