2011 SXSW - GE's Carousolar

2011 SXSW

The energy was contagious in Austin, TX this year during South by Southwest (SXSW) Music, Film and Interactive Conferences & Festivals.  Thousands of people flooded downtown Austin to attend panels from key innovative leaders, and network in sunny 80 degree weather.  One of the major highlights has been GE’s Carousolar, a vintage carousel from the 1920’s that has been re-engineered to run fully on SOLAR ENERGY!

But it’s more than just a ride; it’s also a charging station!  You could charge your phone or similar small device at one of the Solar-powered Charging Stations.

Chill out and ride on GE's Solar-powered Carousel.  This amazing all white carousel was powered by 100 GE solar panels and lit up by GE's very cool and colorful TETRA Contour LED Lights.

The GE CdTe Thin Film Solar Field completely powered the carousel and charging stations at 2011 SXSW.
