Black Rock City LLC, the corporation that runs the show, could allocate a small percentage of ticket revenues for solar panels that could generate more than enough electricity for the whole city. The regular face-pelting dust storms are testament to the potential for wind energy, and the crusty heat flow beneath Nevada's dusty surface makes geothermal power a perfect fit for Black Rock City. With the blessing of the BLM, the company could leave that infrastructure out there all year long to generate energy for the people of neighboring Gerlach, Nev., who patiently welcome the yearly pilgrimage of freaks.
stop, stop, PLEASE!, My sides are hurting!!
This article doesn't particularly make a lot of sense.
They cite the large fossil fuel consumption of cars going to the event, and the presence of fire art, and the fact that we burn everything, and then suggest that the solution is... a solar power grid for BRC.
While I'd love to see solar power replace generators in BRC, I hardly think it would only take a "small portion of ticket sales."
