Solar Energy is Taking over Bonnaroo

Not so long ago, the term ‘solar energy’ seemed futuristic and far-fetched to the average person. The thought of any form of energy, other than the traditional forms we are familiar with, was thought to be too expensive, experimental, and out of reach to the majority, and definitely not for practical use.

Today, solar energy is being used in a myriad of ways, from the practical to the fantastic, proving itself to be a part of the mainstream and a viable energy choice for personal, business, and organizational use.

The Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, has decided to go green in 2013, by having solar panels installed which will provide about 20% of the power needed for the festival. It appears that Bonnaroo is steadily increasing their use of solar power; last year they used solar power for their stage and cell phone chargers during the event. The festival’s plan is to have more solar panels added that will eventually increase their solar energy usage to 100%.

Though many consumers may still be intimidated about the cost of solar energy as opposed to the more  traditional forms, if they are educated on the facts – that many times the expense is a one-time investment that will save them a lot of money on everyday usage – they will be more inclined to think of solar energy as a viable option for their families’ household.
