Popular Lakes Region Energy Expo is Back (440)

WOLFEBORO —  The Lakes Region Energy Expo: $ensible Answers to Your Energy Questions, will be held on Saturday, November 2 at Kingswood Regional High School from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.. It is free and open to the public.

The day long event will include workshops by some of the Northeast's leading experts on energy efficiency and renewables; tours of local energy efficient and solar homes and businesses; and a marketplace of products and services.

Exhibitors and workshops will help attendees learn a wide range of energy saving strategies including insulating and sealing homes, the myths and marketing hype around windows, and a close-up look at renewable energy options like solar hot water and electricity. The "Stump the Chump" workshop provides an opportunity for people to ask the experts your specific energy questions. The complete schedule for the Expo can be downloaded at www.lakesregionenergyexpo.com .

The original Lakes Region Energy Expo held in 2008 was a huge success attracting more than 400 attendees from throughout the State. "We've had requests for years to put on another Expo so we made it a priority for 2013", says Susan Fuller of the Wolfeboro Energy Committee and Chair of the event.

"Energy continues to be a significant portion of the family budget" says State Senator Jeb Bradley. "The Lakes Region Energy Expo provides the tools and information to help you save energy and money."

The price of heating oil is higher today than it was in 2008 when the first Energy Expo was held. "In the past decade heating and cooling system technologies have been transformed allowing us to build more comfortable, energy efficient homes that save the homeowner money" says Gordon Cormack of Cormack Construction Management, an event sponsor.

"Investing in energy efficiency pays back in multiple ways," says Jim Schwartzkopf, Vice President of North Branch Construction and Project Manager of the current construction at the Wolfeboro First Congregational Church. "Lower energy bills, greater comfort, smaller environmental footprint and higher value at re-sale are all reasons our customers are asking us for the most energy efficient buildings."

This year the Expo will also be co-located with a special harvest farmers market so attendees can purchase locally produced vegetables, meats and baked goods as well. Refreshments and lunch will be available to purchase from Slow Food of Carroll County and Tumbledown Farm. The Expo is presented by the Town of Wolfeboro Energy Committee in partnership with the Wentworth Economic Development Corporation (WEDCO).

Thanks to the generosity of sponsors including North Branch Construction, Cormack Construction Management, Meredith Village Savings Bank, Wolfeboro Oil Company, Wood & Clay, Inc., NH Electric Co-op, Frase Electric and SunRay Solar the Expo is free for all attendees.
