When you are producing concerts and other outdoor events you find yourself either using a noisy and smoky construction generator, a too small extension cord run from the nearest building, or waiting forever for an electrician to install a temporary (and very expensive)service panel. None are a good solution.
Kleege Industries, a long time player in mobile staging, has created a new and potentially revolutionary solution to this problem with their Helios 250 mobile stage.
This 32’x24′ mobile stage and load bearing roof is equipped with a 5000 watt solar array that generates enough power to operate a full size concert sound system.
It was tested extensively on last year’s Country Throwdown Tour with Willie Nelson, and according to a Kleege press release, it performed flawlessly. It is also equipped with a backup biodiesel generator, but the genset was not needed a single time.
The Helios 250 is a collaboration with Sustainable Waves, a leader in the field of alternative energies. They adapted their solar array technology to Kleege’s mobile stage to create a staging solution that works for a show anywhere the sun shines. Onboard battery storage even allows the show to continue after dark.
