Commercial Off-grid + Solar Powered Stages an Indie Solar history lesson
Texas Indie Solar opens it’s doors, and whaddaya know, Willie Nelson’s Solar Stage Trailer is our first project. We worked in procurement under Sustainable Waves. After Mr. Nelson used it for his festival tour, the Warp Tour got ahold of it.
2011Sustainable Waves then hired us to procure the equipment for the Tour De' Fat Solar Stage Trailers.
As the 5.5kw, 750 Amhr battery trailers made their way from Austin to North Carolina to deliver to the Tour De' Fat, 2 solar panels flew off of the roof on the highway!
GE’s Solar Carousel
And while we weren’t hired to do anything solar with GE’s Solar Carousel, we were hired to make a canopy for it. So, we call that a win!
The Enlightening Bug
So then we decide that we’re going to make our own solar trailer from scratch. It’s called the Enlightening Bug. It’s a hit at Austin area schools to demo to the kiddos, and hired to charge festival goer’s cell phones at Art Outside, Texas and The Electric Forest Festival in Michigan.
