Since 2007, Planet Bluegrass has committed to voluntarily calculate and offset the Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s carbon footprint (which accounts for over 80% of the total impact of our 3 festivals) by investing in carbon offsets. These are meaningful, measurable projects that either pull greenhouse gasses out of the atmosphere or prevent them from ending up there.

Wildflower Pavilion Solar System

13.2kW DC Photovoltaic System

In 2014, we received support from Sunsense Solar to install a 13.2 kW photovoltaic system on the roof of the Wildflower Pavilion. Funded in part by contributions from Keen Footwear, this array of 54 SunPower modules and the first Lyons project to utilize net metering to feed excess power back into the grid. The system is capable of preventing over 15 tons of CO2 emissions per year.
