About the event
If there is one simple fact that may just change your thoughts on renewable power, it's this one.
In a single hour, the amount of power from the sun that strikes the Earth is more than the entire world consumes in a year.
“Solar Punk” is the festival theme, which envisions a future where community and technology are integrated to create a self-sustaining system. In this event, attendees will learn about alternative self-sustaining ways to work and power their daily lives. It is an iconic one-day event that celebrates the best of Burien and empowers the community by bringing eco-friendly businesses together to showcase what they do and connect them to the community as potential employers. Business, Arts, and Culture are the three most powerful drivers of community participation and engagement in Burien and the pillars upon which the festival is based. The proceeds from The Burien Solar Punk Festival will be utilized to support: Key Tech Labs Green Jobs Expo, Mini Jobs Fair, Small Business Expo, funds for a new micro solar system, and stipends for the youth Green Pre-Apprenticeship Program participants.
Solar Punk Festival attendees young and old will get to experience various Green Technologies. Three examples are our an air to water generator, solar microgrid system and a FarmBot. The air to water generator extracts moisture from the air and converts it into water. The solar microgrid system generates energy from the sun. The FarmBot is an open-source CNC machine that can be programmed to water, seed and weed automatically. Come on and join us because "The Future Is NOW and The Future is GREEN! "
