GIANT!!! FLYING!!! SAUCER!!! LANDS!!! IN!!! GREEN!!! RIVER!!!
The Solar Saucer is a mobile self-contained solar powered sound + light system built + operated by Scott Whitaker. The solar saucer serves is as a stunning and interactive educational apparatus. Scott travels with the Solar Saucer to schools to discuss solar power and alternative energy. However, the educational tool is also wondrous in its fun appearance and technological complexity.
The Solar Saucer stores 1.75 kilowatts per hour in 16 batteries located onboard. Running a 48-volt system the Solar Saucer has a 3600-watt grid tie inverter. Like a traditional generator, the fully mobile saucer can be used anywhere, but runs on the sun. The Solar Saucer provides the stage for interactive performance art or a DJ booth for all-nighter parties. The saucer can power 3,000 LED lights and a sound system all night long!
Based in Salt Lake City, Scott Whitaker creates art out of recycled materials. Founder of the non-profit AMO Tribe, community leader, and educator, Whitaker strives to create positive solutions addressing the environment and global community. In the case of Green River, Scott and his Saucer will be working with kids for the Community Center sometime during the Week of August 10th on a public art piece (stay tuned for specifics!). The Saucer will also provide the sound, lights, and projector for our Melon Nights dance party on Saturday, September 19th beside the Baxter Building. We cannot wait!!! Scott is also interested in a long-term relationship with the community in Green River, but we’re not quite ready to share those details with you just yet…
