Music Video: Grammy-winning Rockers “The Fray” & Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System

February 17th, 2014 by  

Solar energy is a critical solution to numerous crises we are facing today — it is vitalizing and preserving the little planet we populate. We need more people to become aware that now is the time for solar. The just-commissioned Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System sets the stage for The Fray to help with that.

“It ain’t what you say, but what you do…” — The Fray has the goods.

New Energy News remarks:

Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System, the world’s biggest concentrating solar power tower officially went online this week. Grammy-winning rockers The Fray shot their most recent video there. “The public is convinced there are only a handful of ways to get energy,” lead singer Isaac Slade said at the Ivanpah opening.“But those old school ways do lasting damage and my generation is hip to that.”

US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz in earlier report also shared news on the solar project, from the Denver Post Business:

“The Ivanpah project is a shining example of how America is becoming a world leader in solar energy,” US Energy Secretary Ernest Moniz said in a statement after attending a dedication ceremony at the site. “This project shows that building a clean-energy economy creates jobs, curbs greenhouse gas emissions and fosters American innovation.”

    I think its awesome that a band with as much influence/media attention as The Fray is able to make a commentary on renewable energy! /Also, I can’t wait for their new album, Helios, to come out on the 25th!

  • Brendan O’Connor

    Love Don’t Die has been my jam all year. Cool to see these guys backing green energy.

    Brings to mind the Beach Boys “New Vibrations”. Wonder if that would make good background music for a panoramic view of the Ivanpah station?
