Black Rock Solar got started in the summer of 2007 when a group of volunteers led by Matt Mynttinen and Bill Brooks installed a 30 kilowatt array on the playa surface in Black Rock City during the annual Burning Man event, themed that year as The Green Man.  Later that fall, the team moved the array and installed it in the tiny desert town of Gerlach, Nevada, donating the solar project to the town’s school system.

After all the pot and partying. There is solar. Amazing, let’s bring the good ideas to the masses.
