Hip-Hop Duo’s Music Video Is Solar Powered: Atmosphere’s “Sunshine”

The latest music video from the hip-hop duo Atmosphere, of Minneapolis, MN, was made completely with solar energy, thanks to the unique new SunPort gadget and its simple process of buying solar power on demand.

The group’s music video for its popular song from 20017, Sunshine, was created entirely with 100% solar energy, with the film and production crew plugging in to SunPort beta devices to power their equipment. The electricity used through the devices in the video-making process was offset entirely through the SunPort’s solar renewable energy certificate (SREC) system, which allows SunPort users to choose solar, no matter where they plug in.

Here’s the solar-powered video:

And here’s a short look behind the scenes:

As part of the collaboration between SunPort’s Kickstarter campaign and Atmosphere, some backers of the project will be able to pick up a piece of history, as a few lucky fans will receive signed SunPorts from Atmosphere’s Slug and Ant:

“Slug and Ant from Atmosphere actually autographed all of the SunPort Betas used in the making of the “Sunshine” video, and now we’re giving them away to a limited number of backers who help us spread the word about our campaign.

Just back this campaign, then impress us (and the Twittersphere) with a great tweet that includes the hashtag #sunshinesunport. Be sure to also follow us (@sunport) on Twitter so we can DM you for details. You may be one of the lucky ones who receive an Atmosphere-signed (and used) SunPort Beta!”

SunPort’s Kickstarter campaign is still in full swing, with 788 backers pledging some $54,500 toward its $75,000 goal, and 15 days still left to run, so if you’re a renewable energy enthusiast who thinks this idea (buying solar credits on-demand to power your device, in order to fund more solar) has merit, check out the full details on the SunPort page.
