    Posted: Apr/02/2019 at 12:19pm
Hello, attending BAJA SAE for the first time at California. We are from India, and would like to know if:
1. We would be provided power supply at the event site for our power tools?
2. If not, could anyone recommend a store where we could rent a generator? We are wary of potential scams and overpriced deals.
3. All power tools available in India work on 230 V, 50 Hz. Could anyone recommend where we could buy inexpensive converters for the same since the United States power supply is 110 V?

I would call and book the rental as early as possible as there are tons of other teams travelling to that area. you don't want to get there to find that they are all out even though there are plenty of locations

for a converter, check on amazon

Power is not supplied at the event site - you'll need to bring a generator. 

This is the closest Home Depot to the event site: https://www.homedepot.com/l/Newhall/CA/Santa-Clarita/91355/1055
