Solar Energy Fair
September 10, 2016 –
Ever wonder about the costs to install equipment for solar energy? How much will I save long term? How do I develop my own sustainability plan – from solar to wind and other new technologies? Find all the answers at the Solar Fair on Saturday, September 10 from 10:00 am to 12 noon. The fair will feature presentations on the basics of solar electric technology, questions to consider when planning a project, examples of how to finance projects, learn more about the City of Perry’s solar initiatives and expo area with local solar energy/related booths from a variety of vendors. Hosted by Iowa Heartland RC&D, in conjunction with Pathfinders RCD, the fair is designed to be a “one-stop-shop” for people considering solar PV for electricity production at their farm, home, or business. Pre-registration is free and encouraged online at www.pathfindersrcd.org/solarenergy.
Then as any good football fans know, we have to have a tailgate party scheduled at 12 noon, with free hot dogs, chips and drinks. Afterwards, a solar crawl is scheduled for places like the Farmers Market where solar panels are already installed. During the crawl, learn about other initiatives taking place in Perry that can be replicated elsewhere. See you there!
