Hello everyone,

From the book Thank You for Being Late by Thomas Friedman.

One of the most intriguing online intelligent assistants for the work-place that I came across in my research was, cofounded by Alexis Ringwald, an adventurous young entrepreneur whom I first met in India, where she and a partner were highlighting that country’s grassroots renewable energy initiatives by touring around in a solar-powered car—with a solar-powered rock band!
After doing a start-up in the States in solar energy, Ringwald got interested in the employment sector and spent six months interviewing workers looking for jobs.

Does solar-powered rock band means a rock band whose music equipment/instrumets works on solar energy?

Thank you.

    Yes. At the Bangalore Mirror site, it says that the band Solar Punch are "possibly (and regrettably) the only band in the world who use just solar energy to power not only their electric guitars but also the amplifiers, mikes and all the other paraphernalia that go with rock performances."
