Hotel California

Hotel California exists to propagate environmentally conscious technology, art, and living. We prototype systems, open source the designs, and educate people on how to build and deploy similar systems themselves.

We think it’s wild that the world isn’t already running on free, abundant energy provided by the sun. To change that, we created SOLARPUNKS — an interdisciplinary ecosystem designed to help creative industries transition to renewable energy.


A Burning Man Camp that thrives to be a crucible for transformation in Black Rock City.

*Do-ocracy: OSGeo Wiki defines it as “an organizational structure in which individuals choose roles and tasks for themselves and execute them. Responsibilities attach to people who do the work, rather than elected or selected officials."
