Volta Hosts CAMPOUT Event To Promote Green Camping Technology


Share this article

Volta Power Systems hosted its first-ever Volta CAMPOUT at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds in Michigan to promote green camping technology.

The event took place from August 4 to 7, providing nearly 100 Volta-equipped vans and RV owners across the country the opportunity to check out the company’s latest energy storage technology, according to a report.

It also included training seminars, outdoor adventures, a pub crawl, and a concert, which are all supported by Volta li-ion batteries.

RVs equipped with Volta lithium-ion batteries can run air conditioners, 120V appliances, entertainment, and other utilities without using a generator or plugging into shore power.

The company said that during the Volta CAMPOUT, Volta’s systems prevented about 28,000 pounds of carbon dioxide from entering the atmosphere from what traditionally would require generators.

“With sustainability initiatives and RV sales at an all-time high, our user-friendly power systems allow RVers to eliminate generators while camping or boondocking,” said Jack Johnson, CTO and co-founder of Volta Power Systems. 

“We [were] excited to bring Volta-lover and RVers from any manufacturer together for the first time to rally around our tech that has had such a huge impact on the lives of so many van enthusiasts.”

Event attendees got to tour Volta’s headquarters and attend an educational deep-dive into lithium-ion technology.

The event also held Q&A sessions with “#vanlife” influencer and Volta ambassador Scott Watson of the YouTube channel “Go Small, Live Large!”

The “#vanlife” influencers and Storyteller Overland ambassadors Jason and Emma Walsmith attended the campout, with Jason performing a special concert, where he ran his audio system and lit off his van’s Volta system.

Volta Power Systems says there are nearly 5,000 Volta-equipped vehicles on the road, mitigating about 23 million pounds of carbon emissions annually.
