    New Sun/Wingnut Solar Tent

    This last weekend NEW SUN PRODUCTIONS debuted and tested a solar tent with a swamp cooler at the HUDSON RIVER CLEAR WATER FESTIVAL in New York. Even with the regions humidity the event was a success and the cooler ran continuous all day Sunday providing slight cooling for the 10X10 space.

    June 21-25 the tent will be up and running at racer registration for PRIMAL QUEST ADVENTURE RACE at the Red Cliff Lodge in Moab Utah.

    The solar tent is part of an ongoing project to create an environmenatlly focussed tour kit for 2007. The results from these first two tests will then be used to make a second tent to be presented at the Outdoor retailers show in S.L.C. Utah in August, and then later at the Interbike tradeshow in Las Vegas. Other possible venues can be added.

    NEW SUN PRODUCTIONS is currently using their in house brand WINGNUT to promote the tent and hope to get others involved with the tour through this summer.

    Special thanks goes out to GLOBAL SOLAR who have been working with New Sun since January 2006 on this and other solar projects. Their high efficiency light weight panels are making this type of utilization of solar possible for the first time.

    Scott will be in in the desert until the 26th so check in and see how cool the tent is compared to the outside air.
