to be held in New London
Want to learn more about renewable energy and earth-friendly living while simultaneously putting money in your pocket?
Plan to attend the Kearsarge Region Energy & Environment Expo on Saturday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m, in the Mercer Gym on the Colby-Sawyer College campus in New London.
Open to the public at no charge, the Expo will offer free energy-efficient LED light bulbs to the first 25 participants through the door - plus exhibits and presentations on renewable energy (solar, geothermal and biomass), efficiency (LED lighting, weatherization and energy audits), and sustainability (composting, recycling and carbon-free living). There will also be a raffle, plus food and beverages.
Asked about the Expo's focus, New London Energy Committee chair Jamie Hess explained: "Energy costs are taking a big bite out of our pocketbooks, and most of that money ends up in out-of-state or foreign hands, providing no economic benefit to New Hampshire. The Expo will feature local folks offering affordable solutions that save energy, save money, clean up our environment and grow our local economy."
The event is organized by the Kearsarge Council on Aging Climate Action Group, New London Energy Committee, Andover Energy Group and Vital Communities. Exhibitors and presenters include Revision Energy, Solaflect Energy, Granite State Solar, Belletetes Building Supply, Sierra Club, League of Conservation Voters, and New Hampshire Audubon. Sponsorships and other support come from Artisans Workshop, Better Homes & Gardens Realty, Bonin Architects, Clarke's Hardware, Colonial Pharmacy, Flying Goose Brewpub, Four Seasons Sotheby's Realty, Pizza Chef, Springledge Farm and Tucker's.
