You may have seen the recent ad for Dodge Trucks touting the rugged features of the Dodge Ram, which is Motor Trend’s 2010 Truck of the Year. It’s a daring and explosively visual spot, perfectly matched by actor Sam Elliot’s gravelly voice over. If you like commercials that are done well, you’ll watch this one over and over – and when you do, you’ll see a Dodge Ram towing a Hybrid S10 Mobile Solar Power System through the Very Large Array, a massive system of 27 satellite dishes built to examine far away galaxies via capture and mapping of incoming radio waves. No doubt you’ve seen the VLA in countless movies about space and aliens. The appearance of the dishes, against the backdrop of the unforgiving desert, makes a high impact visual. Add a Dodge Ram and our mobile solar generator, and you’ve got a great shot.
Just received our latest issue of the EMA Spring 2010 Newsletter, and were pleased to see our Hybrid Solar Base Camp mentioned as providing clean power for a Warner Bros. production. EMA – The Environmental Media Association – mobilizes the entertainment industry in educating people about environmental issues, which in turn, inspires them to take action.
Pure Power readers will recall that we provided a Hybrid Mobile Solar Power System(TM) to the production of “Valentine’s Day” (Garry Marshall directed, with Julia Roberts, Jamie Foxx, Ashton Kutcher, Shirley MacLaine among the host of mega-stars) . The Hybrid Base Camp consisted of Solar Generators – Hybrid S10 Mobile Solar Power Systems(TM) working alongside Solar Star Waggons(TM) – all working together to avoid a ton of carbon dioxide per day, as well as daily doses of the 40 other carcinogens found in diesel exhaust.
Right now, Pure Power is back at the movies, providing Warner Bros. with the world’s largest Mobile Solar Power System – our 600 Amp/72,000 watt S48 unit is currently powering the base camp of Steve Carell’s current feature production. Everyone working on the production likes that solar systems are silent, and produce no exhaust or smell. Just good clean power!
Steve Carell, the hilarious star of “The 40-Year Old Virgin” and “The Office” now has a new title: “really green comedic actor”. This is because the base camp of his new feature Warner Bros. film project is being solar-powered by the world’s largest Mobile Solar Power System™.
The really powerful solar generator – the S48T designed by Pure Power Distribution – was recently seen powering the base camp of the Leo DiCaprio (“really green serious actor”) starrer “Inception” – so you know this solar system has chops.
What does the world’s largest Mobile Solar Power System do all day? Well, it looks incredibly cool, with moveable solar panels that can track the sun, and then fold down for transport. But even in Hollywood, looking cool is not as important as being cool: the S48T produces 600 Amps of pure sine wave power with no noise, and no emissions – keeping about a ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere each day – along with the other 40 carcinogens found in diesel exhaust.
Pure Power Distribution of Santa Monica, California (www.PurePowerD.com) has announced that it has designed and built its most powerful Mobile Solar Power System™ to date, the S-48T, in time to provide power for some of the current filming of the latest Warner Bros. film. The S-48T provides 600 Amps of clean solar power for 12 hours, enough to power the entire base camp.
“This is a huge day for renewable energy,” said Norris Lozano, CEO of Pure Power, “There are very few work environments that need as much power as feature films, and this new unit can deliver 600 Amps (72,000 Watts) with a single driver/operator.”
Avoiding a ton a day of CO2
Pure Power’s customers care deeply about reducing the carbon footprint of their projects. Over a 50 day shoot, a solar system can avoid 50 tons of CO2 by not using traditional portable diesel generators. Solar generated power can cut the CO2 output by 90%.
The S-48T measures 48 feet in length; needs a single driver/operator, and can provide feature films, TV productions, music performances and special events with silent, clean energy with no emissions. It can be plugged into the base camp system in cases of extreme load.
