The Green Event of the Summer

Energy prices continue to climb, and every day we hear more about global warming. We all want to conserve energy, save money and do better by mother earth, but don't always know where to start.
This July, Nebraskans have an opportunity to learn all about renewable energy at the Nebraska Renewable Energy Fair. After a one-year hiatus, the fair returns and will be held in Lyons, NE on July 23 and 24, 2010.

During a Renewable Energy bus tour on Friday, July 23, participants can observe renewable energy practices in action. One of the stops on the tour will be a farm that is a functioning integrated energy demonstration project and has been operating off grid for over 6 years.

On Saturday, July 24, participants will learn about small and utility-scale wind turbines, see biodiesel being made, learn about USDA programs on energy efficiency and renewable energy systems, gain the concepts of energy conservation programs and practices, and much more.

The fair will feature a variety of breakout sessions with appeal for business owners, farmers and ranchers, community leaders and homeowners. You will also have an opportunity to visit exhibit booths and observe renewable energy demonstrations throughout the day.

Other topics include: cutting crop inputs and livestock feed costs, energy safety and much more.

Whether you feel like a victim in today's high energy cost world or you are looking for ways to go green and conserve, you can actually take control and make a difference. Learn how by attending the Nebraska Energy Fair.
