Solar powered DJ booth more than just fun in the sun

palms solar power boothIn Las Vegas, there is no shortage of certain things: Beer, babes, pool parties …

There is also no shortage of sun.

Now, a Las Vegas-based nightlife and hospitality company has found a way to draw on Las Vegas’ natural excess of sun to guarantee even more beer, babes and pool parties.

N9NE Group recently unveiled Las Vegas’ first solar-powered DJ booth during Ditch Fridays at the Palms Pool and Bungalows. The booth, built by Sustainable Waves, uses Sharp solar panels to harness power and Outback inverters to convert it into 110 volts of electricity. 

Miller Lite also sponsors the booth and all the banners advertising Miller around the Palms pool are printed on a biodegradable vinyl.

The solar powered booth is just one of the creative methods businesses in Las Vegas are utilizing to reduce their carbon footprint.  There are many green initiatives in place behind the scenes at some of the largest resorts in Las Vegas. The Palms Resort even has its own green blog. For more tips on being green while vacationing in Vegas, click here.

    Hi there,
    I’m currently trying to create a solar powered+deep cycle battery powered setup so I can do some kinda “flashmod DJ events” in city parks etc and have just bought a Calibre 40amp/hour deep cycle battery with inputs for solar (because it was mark down to $50 from $250).
    I know my two CDJ400s only need 19watts each but there’s nothing listed as watts required on my mixer (it’s an old Behringer CDX400-DON’T JUDGE ME!)…anyway is there a simple way of finding out the amount of power I’ll need in total?
    I plan on having the speakers run on a seperate battery via a car stereo I have with aux inputs…

    Any help at all with this setup and you’ll get as much good karma as I can summon sent your way…

    Even if you can’t help I still think your setup is fantatic..

    Hi Ross, and thanks for reading! I would suggest you contact Sustainable Waves, They are the company that designed the booth for the Palms and they would be able to answer your question much better than me!!!!

    Good luck!! Your setup sounds really amazing and I applaud you going the green route!

    I recently started out creating my own solar panels – I utilized some video guides I discovered and it’s working out good!
