Renewable energy fairs are a great way to learn about renewable energy.
Most fairs include workshops, talks, and renewable energy supplier displays, and a chance to talk to a lot of very knowledgeable people. Find one near you and go.
The list below includes all the energy fairs I could find -- let me know if I missed yours.
If you know of an energy fair, sustainability fair, or workshop event coming up, let me know ... so I can add it to the list.
Build-It-Solar gets 5 million
+ visitors a year, so its a good way to get the word out.
|Its very hard to keep this page up to date as many of the fair websites change every year. So, if you see a listing for a fair, but the link does not work, just try Googling for it -- chances are its still out there, but my link to it is wrong.|
