Voltstack® 20k Powers 2021 PNE Fair

There were many factors that contributed to the success of the scaled-down version of the 2021 PNE Fair. Despite the many challenges that come with a global pandemic, the annual end-of-summer celebration still brought in 289,000 guests, including six sold-out days. Playing a major role in that success was the Voltstack® 20k e-Generator.

After supplying emission-free energy to a number of events this year, including the Vancouver Mural Fest and powering productions for the 16th annual Mighty Asian Moviemaking Marathon (MAMM), our Voltstack® 20k portable power station powered the 111th PNE Fair and helped it deliver on all the FUNdamentals we’ve come to know and love.

“​Metro Vancouver is committed to implementing plans, policies, regulations and projects that improve air quality and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It was really important that we didn’t use a generator that burned diesel gas and created emission problems,” says John Donnelly, producer of the Metro Vancouver activation at the 2021 PNE Fair. “They wanted a green solution and Portable Electric’s Voltstack® 20k portable power station was the best fit.”

John’s team rented the Voltstack® 20k portable power station for the entire duration (17 days) of the fair. “Even though it was such a big site, the unit ran 24/7. We were able to get shore power from the PNE to power the battery and we had a 60 Amp line which helped us power the entire show with the e-generator,” John says.

Portable Electric has been revolutionizing how events are designed and powered for a few years already. Our efforts are consistent with a growing environmental revolution sweeping the entertainment world. As we continue to work with industry-leading event companies to provide clean energy solutions, we’re inspired by organizations like REVERB and Massive Attack’s work with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research to create a greener roadmap for the whole industry.
