Solar Power, and the Granola Funk Theatre at the Rainbow Gathering

The Granola Funk Theatre at the Rainbow Gathering in the Bridger Teton National Forest in Wyoming in early July 2008 was powered solely by solar power.

Granola Funk Theatre folks used a solar panel, an inverter, and a battery. They also used a meter, and lights, of course. They wheeled in this system about 2 miles, and it worked very reliably, giving enough light for night performances. Solar power is here, and it works.

All of the equipment is easy to get, and relatively inexpensive.

Solar energy can't easily heat a warm pool to 98 degrees Farhenheit to soak in, yet, in northern climes, but given improvements in efficiency ... ~ to a solar-heated, warm pool, everywhere, soon.
