Solamor's new Whisper Wing hybrid power unit features SolarWorld-made solar panels, two wind turbines and an on-board biofuel power generator.
Solamor Event Services partnered with SolarWorld on its latest creation for special event clean energy solutions.
"The Whisper Wing" as the unit has been dubbed by Portland-based Solamar, features eight made-in-Hillsboro panels from SolarWorld, two Southwest Wind Power wind turbines, a power inverter and an on-board biofuel generator.
The unit will be a linchpin in the clean power grid for the What the Festival music and art event coming up in July in White River Canyon.
"Our partnership with SolarWorld will help us power big-name events almost entirely on clean, renewable energy," said Tatianna Pavich, co-founder of Solamor.
Solamor, which also helps event organizers with waste control and local procurement for overall carbon impact reduction, sets up temporary renewable-energy grids for events. Other events using Solamor's services include the Portland Marathon, PDX Bridge Fest, Ecotrust Concert series and others.
Solamor was a finalist in 2011 for Sustainable Business Oregon's Innovation in Sustainability awards.
