What Is It?We all want to conserve energy, save money and do better by mother earth, but we don't know where to start. Fortunately, a remedy is coming. The Nebraska Renewable Energy Fair will feature a renewable energy bus tour, demonstrations, breakout sessions, exhibit booths and more. You can see the slide show from the first renewable energy fair at the right (photos courtesy of Rhea Landholm).
What's Going on at the Fair?On Friday, July 23, the fair features a Renewable Energy Bus tour, where participants will observe renewable energy practices in action. One of the highlights is a stop at a farm that is a functioning integrated energy demonstration project. It has been operating off grid for over 6 years.
