Run your event on sun

Clean energy for community events, festivals, outdoor parties and more

In partnership with South East London Community Energy, and inspired by our friends V3 Power we has created a hand-built solar powered trailer to replace diesel generators at outdoor events, removing noise, smell and dirty emissions. The solar trailer provides independent sustainable power for events that inspire, entertain and make lasting impact without costing the earth.

As well as providing onsite renewable power for a range of demanding applications, the trailer's solar array and power storage set-up are an attraction in their own right - providing learning and inspiration about renewable energy of the future.

The integrated LCD control interface displays all system activity and performance using an intuitive and easily accessible visual display. Solar input and power output data is uploaded to an online portal in real time, allowing anyone to access and monitor the trailer's performance on their phone or computer.

We are building a new solar trailer in 2017 working with Growing Futures in Bristol - please get in touch if you're interested in exploring or using a solar trailer yourself.
