For the last 4 years the solar installers of the Renewable Republic have traveled with their mobile solar stage to events across south Texas. Their pv installers and master electricians built the solar stage as a testament of the versatility of solar pv power. The solar stage has hosted numerous concerts in San Antonio, driven in the King William South-Town Parade and has been center stage at many venues including Build San Antonio Green Events and San Antonio’s very own Eco-Centro.
At the Renewable Republic we try to waste nothing and are constantly upcycling, re-using and looking for innovative ways to stretch the boundaries of our resources and solar power. When we began hosting increased numbers of concerts, green building workshops and urban farm camps on our property, we knew it was time for a transformation.
We gave our solar install crews a break from the hot roofs for a few days and we all dove into the solar outdoor kitchen conversion project. The solar stage was parked in the 1/3 acre garden. A wrap around deck built from 2×6’s and metal roofing was installed. Of course we added a mobile butcher block cart and 3 sink dish washing station to compliment our antique bottle opener equipped beverage cooler. Storage for the dishes used during outdoor cooking was added along with benches, tables and seating that all allow you to enjoy the beautiful expansive view of the garden and pond.
Some of our solar fans were sad to see loss of us at other venues, but the increased traffic here on site definitely warranted this new green project build. We look forward to seeing everyone in the near future!
