Local green energy enthusiasts are counting down to the Addison County Green Energy Expo. The event, scheduled for March 21 at Middlebury Union High School, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., brings together experts and businesses for a day of local food, workshops, exhibits, demos, entertainment and community.
With the theme of "Building Sustainable Homes and Businesses", home and business owners will leave the event with ideas on how to reduce energy costs, become more efficient in their daily lives, build affordably, weatherize their homes, and more.
The event builds on the success of last year's Green Energy Expo which was attended by nearly 1,000 residents and business people.
The event creates a forum where businesses with renewable energy, green building and efficiency products and services can showcase their wares, and all members of the community can come together to learn from each other or take part in a day-long series of related workshops led by area experts.
