MORETOWN ENERGY GROUP ENERGY FAIR!

The Moretown Energy Group is hosting an Energy Fair at the Moretown Elementary School on Saturday, September 20 from 2:00 – 5:00. As part of the fair, the first Button-Up Vermont workshop will be held from 3:00 – 5:00 in collaboration with Central Vermont Community Action, the Agency of Human Resources and Efficiency Vermont. This workshop, the first of 100 to be given around the state, will show participants how to find the biggest energy leaks in their homes, the most effective strategies for saving energy, what you can do yourself and when you need a professional, and where to find technical and financial help. Find out what weatherization projects give the best bang for the buck!
Weatherization isn’t all. The Energy Fair will also include displays and information by Button-Up Vermont, Efficiency Vermont, the Green Mountain Transit Agency and VTrans’ new ride share program. Both Harwood Union’s environmental club and Moretown Elementary School cold frame gardening and compost projects will be on display. John Lynch of Central VT Driving School will hold a hands-on primer on how to run your car at top efficiency. Participants can find out how to save energy and money in their homes from the Solar Store, and how to heat their homes safely this winter from the Moretown Fire Department. They may find a few plants to take home from the plant and seed trade table in preparation for next spring or learn about the many active groups in Moretown: the sidewalk committee, byways committee, and recreation committee, all of whom will be represented.
