As part of Warner Brothers efforts to reduce its environmental footprint, the studio has been renting the world’s largest “Mobile Solar Power System” for movies like DiCaprio’s Inception and an upcoming Steve Carrell project.
Created by Pure Power Distribution, such a rig not only tracks the position of the sun for optimal efficiency, but also outputs 600 Amps/72,000 watts of “pure sine wave power with no noise, and no emissions”. That’s enough to keep about a ton of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere each day – along with the other 40 carcinogens found in diesel exhaust.
Apparently, it takes little more than a couple of minutes to have everything up and running once delivered to a set.
Kudos to Warner Bros for taking the initiative to use an alternative to the standard diesel generator. No doubt Pure Power would love to see some other studios get involved as well.
