Lifest: Off-Grid Event Power

Oshkosh, WI, and Nashville, TN

share this project

Overview

Lifest is one of the nation’s largest Christian music festivals. Nearly 40,000 people attended this family-friendly 4-day event in 2022 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, as well as thousands at Lifest Music City in Nashville, Tennessee.

Challenges

Because of the locations of the festival grounds, an off-grid solution was needed. EnTech Solutions provided temporary event power with Xcape™ microgrids at each site.

Solution

During the 2022 Lifest events, EnTech’s microgrids powered the organization’s electronic ticketing system and information booths at both sites. Electricity generated also powered Lifest’s staff trailers at each event, including lights and air conditioning, along with cellphone charging stations. Though supplemental generator power was included in the microgrids, they were never used; the power was generated entirely with clean solar energy.
