Powering Up Events In The Southwest.

 

Hi, it’s Alex here. Technical & Operations director for Progen Power.

It may be peak season for the events industry but i needed to set some time aside to talk about the recent upsurge in events throughout the Southwest.

As a leading provider of Generator and Distribution Hire Services, we've had the privilege of travelling to various parts of the country, but there's an undeniable charm and satisfaction in serving festivals and events on our doorstep here in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, and Dorset.

 

From the very beginning it was imperative that the Progen Power brand was built around its unique values. We are obsessed with this industry and our team members love what they do, and do it with a passion that sets us apart.

 

In this blog post, we will explore the reasons why we believe it is incredibly rewarding to be a part of these vibrant events here in the Southwest.


 

1. Embracing the Local Culture

One of the most remarkable aspects of working in the Southwest is immersing ourselves in the unique local culture. Each of these counties has its own distinct traditions, art, and festivities, which reflect the heritage of the region.

Unique events such as St Piran’s Day, Tropical Pressure Festival, Leopallooza, Beautiful Dayz & Boardmasters.  

From traditional music festivals to historical reenactments, providing power services to such events not only supports the organisers, but also helps us appreciate the depth of history and tradition that thrives in the Southwest.

2. The Beauty of the Southwest Landscape

Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, and Dorset boast some of the most stunning landscapes in the country. The rugged coastline, picturesque countryside, and charming villages create an awe-inspiring backdrop for any event.As a service provider, it is a joy to set up our equipment amidst such breathtaking scenery.

Our team often finds themselves marvelling at the beauty of these places, making the work feel more like a pleasurable experience rather than a mere job.

3. Building Relationships with Local Communities

In the Southwest, a strong sense of community is deeply ingrained in the people. When we provide our services to local events, we have the opportunity to establish meaningful connections with event organisers, vendors, artists, and attendees. Over time, we have witnessed how these events foster a sense of togetherness and pride among the locals.

Being a part of this shared experience has allowed us to build lasting relationships and gain a deeper understanding of the community's needs and aspirations.

4. Contributing to Sustainable Solutions

Our commitment to the environment and sustainable practices is at the core of our business. By servicing events in the Southwest, we can promote eco-friendly approaches to power generation. We offer HVO Generators (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil), which significantly reduces carbon emissions compared to traditional diesel generators.

Encouraging the adoption of such clean energy solutions aligns with the region's emphasis on preserving its natural beauty and reducing its carbon footprint.

5. Fostering a Spirit of Celebration

The Southwest is known for its vibrant festivals and lively events. From music festivals to food fairs, these gatherings exude a contagious spirit of celebration. As providers of power solutions, we take pride in playing a behind-the-scenes role in making these events possible. Knowing that our reliable services help facilitate joyous occasions and unforgettable experiences adds a sense of fulfilment to our work.


 

In conclusion, supplying power to festivals and events in Devon, Cornwall, Somerset, and Dorset is more than just a job for us—it's an enriching experience that brings us closer to the heart of local communities. The amalgamation of natural beauty, cultural richness, and a welcoming spirit makes working in the Southwest truly unique.

As we continue our journey of providing Generator Hire and Distribution Hire Services, we eagerly look forward to being a part of more local events, and contributing to the magic of the Southwest.
