We truly enjoyed working from the Helios, the attention to detail to make it an Eco friendly asset to our industry should be commended. The quiet workspace you get when running on the solar power is delightful! Rob was pleasant to be around and always willing to help out. Thank you Rob and King Kong for bringing us the Helios!

North Six has been working with King Kong for many years now.  Not only is their customer service unparalleled, but their fleet of motorhomes is always clean, reliable, and exactly what we need to support our photo productions.

The drivers were awesome to be with.  Hard working drivers!!   It really stands out when the drivers jump in to help set up base camp, and tear it down.  Not to mention always having a fresh green tea for me just when I needed it every time.  They really were great and I’d ask for them anytime we get vehicles from you. Thanks!

The Helios is a great motorhome. Not only is it energy efficient but it offers a large space for production to work in. The copy machine is great because you can wirelessly print and make color copies and send faxes. The satellite phones came in handy when we realized we didn’t have any cell service on location. We received several compliments throughout the shoot day. Crew walked into the motorhome in awe of such a beautiful space.

We’ve used the Helios twice now and have been quite impressed each time.  It has everything production could want AND it’s earth friendly! We will use the Helios on every job in which we need a moho.

Rusty, Bruce and the guys at King Kong were a crucial asset to my photoshoot.  They took a lot of stress off of my plate and came through when I needed them, allowing me to focus 100% on the production.  Without a doubt, King Kong is now my go-to for production vehicles and I do not hesitate to recommend them to my colleagues.  And, not only is Rusty the best and most helpful driver I have ever had the pleasure of working with, he is also awesome with a fog machine!

World’s First Solar-Geothermal Hybrid Plant Opens in the Nevada Desert

Nevada is home to some enormous solar power facilities and is a focal point of the expansion of geothermal energy production, so it makes sense that someone would pick the state to combine the two in one beast of a clean energy production center. That someone is Enel Green Power (EGP), which in May opened the world’s first solar-geothermal hybrid energy power plant in northwestern Nevada.

EGP, a green arm of the Italian Enel Group, developed a geothermal plant at the Stillwater site in Churchill County, 60 miles east of Reno, in 2009, reports Engadget. The process drills wells into the ground to capture heat from steam and hot water rising from the Earth’s molten core, using it to drive turbines and generate electricity.

Once the 33 megawatt plant was set up, it was only natural to consider the addition of solar panels, given its location in the Nevada desert. So Enel installed 89,000 panels, adding 26 more megawatts of energy to its peak capacity.

The combination of the two power sources limits the weaknesses of each, notes Engadget. Solar power is only generated during sunny days, while geothermal energy doesn’t depend on the weather or time. It does, however, require a lot of up front investment and is a riskier proposition, so having a solar component is a way of hedging your bet.

Considering how much sense this operation makes, I’ll be surprised if Enel and its competitors don’t open more facilities like it in the near future.
