This email just in from a reader getting in touch via environment(at) burningman.com:
Somebody at [name of very cool company in Hopland] is spreading a rumour that the Project will provide a solar charging station on the playa this year. Is it true? If so, where can we get more information?
The answer is no. And yes. Isn’t the playa great?
The Burning Man Project ( or ORG ) isn’t providing solar power. That said, I do know of at least two places on the playa where there will be some kind or another of solar charging stations. One will be at the Green Man Pavilion ( quite small, think iPods and camera batteries ) and the other somewhere on the open playa. No more details at this time ( if you know more, let me know ) but as always: radical self reliance. Would be a shame to see people lining up to recharge because they hadn’t planned ahead. Thanks for writing, hope that helps!
