CANTON, NY -- The Local Living Venture is putting out a call for speakers and vendors of renewable energy and energy efficiency for an event to be held on Saturday, December 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. This one day "mini" Energy Fair will include up to a dozen workshops and speakers, plus a variety of exhibitors and vendors.
The Small Scale Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Extravaganza is geared for new homes, as well as retrofit work, and/or grid-tied utilities, where the building owner creates power that is sold back into the power grid. There will also be a particular focus on wood-burning technology, stoves, and improvements to burning efficiencies.
Topics will include home or small-business sized systems for solar, wind, hydro, geothermal, wood heating innovations, energy efficiency for the average home and more! The venue is the Cooperative Extension Learning Farm on Rt. 68 just outside Canton; they will also showcase their portable pelleter and various energy programs for the event.
