About Us


Phoenix Power Group LLC, a privately held company incorporated in Tennessee, was established to develop alternative energy technologies that are environmentally friendly and that make good business sense. Phoenix has entered into license agreements with several companies that are leaders in their industry for the proprietary components of its Waste Oil Electrical Generators. In addition, Phoenix has patents pending for elements of this revolutionary technology and has the worldwide rights for waste oil to power applications. The company believes that our intellectual property rights, state-of-the-art technology and decades of experience in the used oil market will place it in a leadership position in this exciting new industry.

Being an environmentally-conscious company, Phoenix has significant interest in projects in underdeveloped countries. Many of these areas have vast supplies of waste oil, but have no means to effectively utilize it. The majority of these areas often suffer from the same adversity: lack of electricity and/or clean drinking water. Over 1.2 billion people - 20% of the world's population - are still without access to electricity worldwide.

Phoenix’s electrical generators can easily be utilized to 1) properly dispose of a potential surface and groundwater contaminant; 2) provide needed inexpensive electricity; 3) power water treatment facilities to provide drinkable water; and 4) power small hospital/clinic facilities. Phoenix looks forward to working with worldwide organizations to literally bring light into these people’s lives.
