Although today Black Rock Solar empowers nonprofits, schools, and underserved populations by providing low-cost energy, its beginnings were less defined. In the sweltering Black Rock Desert of northern Nevada a volunteer group installed a solar array for the 2007 Burning Man event—themed that year as the Green Man. Their giant array provided more than 50,000 people with energy while they partied, but afterward, when the ash of the burning figure settled, the solar panels remained. The group donated the array to the school system of Gerlach, the tiny desert town nearby, and the seeds of Black Rock Solar were sown.
From those beginnings, Black Rock went on to build solar arrays at reduced prices for partners such as Pershing General Hospital, Pyramid Lake High School, the Fallon Paiute Shoshone Tribe, and other organizations that could benefit from low-cost energy but lacked the means to procure it. The arrays help reduce the organizations' utility bills so they can devote more resources to their central causes. Also by spreading solar power, Black Rock actively involves these organizations and the public at large in environmental stewardship, spreading clean energy and education.

Even our furry friends have bad hair days, and the experienced groomers at Alice's Pet Parlor are ready to make them better. With their full range of grooming services for both dogs and cats, these groomers clip coats into flattering styles, wash and brush debris from dirty fur, and even clean and pluck excess hair from ears, so pets can't use, "I can barely hear you," as an excuse for not picking up their toys. While waiting for their appointments, pets sprawl out in their own kennel or make the rounds of the parlor as they greet and play with the other clients waiting for their turn in the groomer's chair.
