Madeline Cammarata, President of Green Stream Holdings, commented, "Green Stream is dedicated to helping create a world that works better in the future by bringing revolutionary solar energy solutions into the present. Our model delivers value to shareholders by delivering affordable, clean, aesthetically successful solar capacity and solar-based solutions to commercial entities and communities in many markets across the US."
Green Stream Holdings subsidiary Green Rain Solar, LLC, (greenrainsolar.com) is the company's public face and branded business. The video highlights Green Rain Solar's model, as it works to establish functional solar-powered greenhouses in inner city contexts, providing local businesses and residents with a resource for additional food production. These structures are constructed entirely of seamlessly integrated solar panels that soak up solar energy while filtering out the red end of the visible light spectrum, promoting blue/green light, leading to as much as 94% more robust growth for vegetation inside the greenhouse.
The structures are being designed in partnership with legendary architect Anthony Morali of Morali Architects and Renewable Energy Development (R.E.D.), creating a powerful marriage between design and functionality. In addition, as described in the video, these structures are designed to produce an excess of solar energy, which can then be profitably sold back into the local electricity grid.

#3 Potential GSFI Growth Catalyst - Recent Corporate Update
Green Stream Holdings Issues Corporate Update on West Coast Expansion as Solar Gets Essential Service Status in California
Pacific Palisades, California--(Newsfile Corp. - April 30, 2020) - Green Stream Holdings Inc. (GSFI) ("Green Stream Holdings", "GSFI", or the "Company"), an emerging leader in the democratization of solar energy through innovative solar energy generation facilities and designs, is pleased to provide current and prospective shareholders with an update as the Company moves toward aggressive expansion in the California marketplace, where solar energy has been designated as an essential service during the CV-19 lockdown process.
"We're glad to see solar energy designated as an essential service in California," stated Madeline Cammarata, President of Green Stream Holdings. "We continue to be extremely excited about our expansion on the West Coast. Our model is unique and holds the potential to create enormous value for underserved communities and our shareholders."
GSFI holds two core businesses: Green Stream Finance, Inc. ("Green Stream"), and Green Rain Solar, LLC ("Green Rain"). Both segments are involved in the production of solar energy at company owned and operated facilities, with rooftops acting as a core site premise.
Green Stream Finance is a community shared solar model where the tremendous benefits of solar energy creation can be shared among the residents of a community. This model has proven extremely effective at "democratizing" the value of energy generated through rooftop or quasi-local solar farms by allowing local residents to purchase access to the energy proceeds through the local utility provider through customer contracts. However, the industry has failed to gain strong traction because design is important to privately-held commercial property interests, which has limited access. Green Stream has partnered with architecture legend Anthony Morali to design solar installations that seamlessly integrate into commercial structures to remove this obstacle and open up more capacity in municipal areas.
In underserved and growing markets, Green Stream engages customers through simple leasing agreements of solar infrastructure, next-generation batteries, and PPAs (Power Purchase Agreements). Typically, the Company retains 80% of the customer's savings, which are substantial.
Green Rain Solar (greenrainsolar.com) is the branded public face of the GSFI ecosystem, and primarily engages in the construction of bespoke commercial solar projects and solar-powered greenhouses perfect for rooftop agriculture or aquaponics (the symbiotic cultivation of aquatic life and vegetation). Green Rain installations will generate revenues through the sale of solar energy as well as access to cultivation facilities within its greenhouses. Green Rain anticipates strong access to unique markets through the added benefit of its greenhouse facilities, and the ability to market greenhouse cultivation plots and donate freshly cultivated natural foods to local communities.
"Our model generates significant margins and has the ability to scale up rapidly and without significant balance sheet risk," continued Cammarata. "Our Green Stream model is established. But we are even more excited about our Green Rain model. Our greenhouses are designed with the future in mind. Greenhouses use over 18 million kWh of electricity each year. We have mobilized recent research from UC Santa Cruz, using solar energy and pink light, to create facilities that will drive faster, more robust growth on a zero-carbon footprint, and generate a marketable surplus of solar energy. We then monetize the facility as a food cultivation resource and energy farm. This is where the future is headed. This is something that every community can value."

Sheikh's financial expertise is in venture capital and asset based lending, and his most notable success was taking MMI International Trade from $150k in annual sales to over $2.5m in annual sales within a period of two years. All the while, he cultivated an effective sales force and management team, upgraded manufacturing, modernized operations and instituted quality controls that enabled the company to catapult into global success. MMI now has over $10m in sales annually and is an industry leader.
