DIY Renewables

It all started back in 2015 when I was helping out at a festival called RAW FEST, a raw Vegan festival. I’ve only just made it to vegetarian and sympathise with anyone noble enough to give up meat for ethical reasons. It’s hard work but very rewarding. At RAW FEST I was the ‘green chief’ assisting with everything green on the site. Making or at least trying to arrange: Energy Sources, composting toilets and renewably powered showers. This is what lead me to Camplight, Josh and PPL PWR.

PPL PWR @ ValleyFest ’16

After epic journeys from London to Bristol, Bridgewater to Leicester and, well, back again, the PPL PWR team arrived in Chew Magna for this year’s Valley Fest 2016!

The team were to host the Green Energy Tipi in the Village Green section up on the hill, with a lovely view through the Valley Fest sign, overlooking the Main Stage. Tasked with providing ‘edutainment’ to an array of festival-goers – from ages 8 to 80! – on the subjects of green energy, renewables and sustainability, the team put together an awesome display of commercial, makeshift and research-based stalls.
