San Jose, California — On September 19, 2008, West Coast Green, the nation’s largest conference and expo dedicated to green innovation, building, design and technology announced that SolaRover, a mobile solar power systems provider would join forces with the conference to provide solar power to several major areas at the event, eliminating the need for conventional electricity in those areas. This is the most extensive known diversion of power to solar electricity that has been accomplished to date at the venue.
SolaRover provided a 10 kW mobile solar generator with 14 175-watt solar panels, enough to power the Innovation Pipeline exhibit, the conference showhouse; the SG Blocks™ "Harbinger", designed by Lawrence Group, and the Civic Auditorium including audio/visuals where Nobel Laureate Al Gore delivered his keynote address Saturday. The generator weighs about 6,000 pounds and contains 32 batteries that charge when the sun is high to prolong the operation period to eighteen.
