CUSTOMERS & TESTIMONIALS
Portable Electric gave the Vancouver International Soccer Festival the power to choose clean, renewable energy. I am thrilled they are operating in Vancouver and impressed at the capability of their battery systems. We will certainly get them to power our entire event next year!
I have been looking for this type of solution that Portable Electric offers for some time. I was always thinking that the noisy, smelly gas powered generators were taking away from our events. Portable Electric delivered exactly what they said they would. Thank you.
We were excited to Welcome Portable Electric to help power our Blessed Coast Festival this year and in doing so, we were blown away! The level of stewardship the team holds over this incredible technology made the difference in smoothly running our sound and lighting off silent, renewable energy. It was a miracle we had only dreamed of years ago.
Portable Electric is about to change the way festivals sound and smell forever. The inaugural Vancouver Mural Festival launched with 80,000 people celebrating on Main Street and one of the best parts of the event was the “festival staple” that was missing: stinky gas generators and rumbling motors behind every stage and food cart. Instead: quiet, clean power! We look forward to the impending festival power revolution.
Using silent electric power saved us a number of headaches. Having the power station right beside set meant I could manage this project with very little help and save money. Because noisy gas or diesel options need to be hundreds of feet away before the sound man stops complaining, you often need an extra person who can babysit the unit, keep it topped up and check the lines if something goes wrong. I managed this entire project with only one other LX crew member, and I was never more than a few steps from set.
