Helios Eco-Trailer Powered by the Sun

Helios is an Eco-Trailer from King Kong Production Vehicles, a company that provides trailers and motor homes to the entertainment industry.  The company claims this is the world’s first solar hybrid production trailer and expected to be “the most advanced Eco trailer with the least impact on the environment,” according to a press release.

The green trailer has solar panels, bamboo cabinetry, FSC-certified lumber, recycled-content glass desks and countertops, recycled rubber floors, and a bio-diesel generator.

During a use of the Helios on location, the trailer ran for 14 hours without the use of a generator or other fuel.  This saved about 28 gallons of fuel that would have been used without the solar panels on the roof.

    Its Great to see the Entertainment industry Using Solar! And making an effort to use sustainable products with a low carbon footprint. We have retrofitted multiple work trailers for the construction industry with Solar as well. This Project Takes it to the Next Level!

    FEMA should take notes and inspiration to overhaul their temporary housing / disaster relief trailers.
