The purpose of this web page is to providing information concerning our home and place of business Slab City USA. We have spent winters here since 1985, enjoying the mild winter climate of the Southern California Desert, and selling and installing lots of Solar Panel Systems. The last three summers we have chosen to stay and enjoy the summers here as well. In order to tolerate the heat we have installed a 2.2kW solar system on our main residence and expanded our office solar system and shop solar system as well. There are no utilities here but ample sunlight. Water and groceries are available at the nearby town of Niland CA 2.5 miles west of Slab City.
This is a quiet ad hoc desert community with winter daytime temperatures averaging somewhere in the high seventies and very little rain. Although the mild climate originally brought us here it is the wonderful, adventurous, creative full of life, people, that keeps bringing us back year after year.
Some of the non club sponsored activities a t Slab City include weekly non denominational worship each Sunday. Builder Bill has organized what he calls The Range with live entertainment by local entertainers sundown each Saturday. Johnny (Sticks) often has live music also on the corner of LOW and Beal Rd. Each year in January , the last Wednesday in January, we sponsor the Annual Solar Potluck. This event has been growing each year with lots of great food and local talent. If you are in the neighborhood, and see the lights on, swing on by Slab City USA. Maybe you can contribute some of your ideas and talent while enjoying this great desert community.
Slab City is a community changing all the time, seasonally and yearly. We have a population of all races and socioeconomic class. This fact is what makes it one of the most interesting places to visit and live in the country. Everyone seem to get along.
If you decide to spend some time here remember that their is ample space to park so you don't have to pull right up next to the campsite next to you. You can set up your camp anywhere rent free and if you respect your neighbor you will get the same in return. Leave some room and consider the fact that they might like to enjoy the desert without having to listen to your personal conversations, tv, radio or generator.
Speaking of generators over the years Slab City campers have come to realize the when it comes to generating electricity solar panels are easier, more reliable, more economical, as well as less noisy. I think on a per capita basis Slab City could have one of the highest percentages of solar powered residences in the country. I have been selling and installing solar panels here since 1986. If I can help you get comfortable here stop by and see me I would be happy to help you by installing a solar electric system. You can enjoy the quite of the desert with all the comforts of home.
Remember "The Sun Works"
