Solar One presents Citysol 2007, a clean-energy-powered festival that aims to inspire interest and support for local sustainability intiatives through, music, interactive art installations, games and workshops, and numerous other elements meant to both entertain and educate.

The music you hear at Citysol is 100% powered by Solar One’s 3.5 kW rooftop photovoltaic array and a 13 kW generator fueled with biodiesel provided by NYC’s own Tristate Biodiesel. Artists were also encouraged to pursue independent power methods for their installations and projects. Native Energy Carbon offsets are being purchased to account for extra energy expenditures.

Among the performers, a must see is the DJ Mistakes’ bicycle-powered turntablism.
