Mobile Solar Generator to Power Sausage and Suds


A mobile solar generator, dubbed the SolaRover, from Renewables West will help power the Sausage and Suds Food and Music Festival on October 4, 2009.

The trailer-mounted solar panels generate approximately 2 kilowatts of power.

One of the units was on display on Saturday, October 3, in the parking lot outside Ploughman's Restaurant in San Leandro.

Renewables West is a division of Mr. Plastics, a "full-service plastics distribution, fabrication and manufacturing company" that has operated in San Leandro for more than 20 years.

Two kilowatts of power per what? Is that per hour or for the whole day? Did they have more than one? And what percentage of the entire energy used by the festival does this account for?

Without this information, this is just PR, no?
