Energy Fair in Meredith on Saturday

MEREDITH ‚ The Lakes Region Energy Fair will be held Saturday, October, 18, at Inter-Lakes High School from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event will feature over 25 local vendors showcasing their products, expertise and services according to Ken Colburn of the Meredith Energy Committee, a co-sponsor of the event.

In addition to a gym full of vendors, fair organizers have scheduled 16 interesting presentations on a wide range of relevant energy topics including home weatherization, wood energy options, residential solar, hot water alternatives, local energy projects, energy grants & rebates, living off the grid and NH's energy future.

"We have a host of local and state experts to share lots of great information and perspective," says Chris Johnson of the Center Harbor Energy Committee. The 45 minute sessions are informal and will provide plenty of time to have questions answered. The complete program including times and topics can be found at the Town of Meredith web site www.meredithnh.org.

Attendees can visit the vendors, attend a presentation or two, or do a little of both as their day permits. Over $4,000 worth of energy-related door prizes will be given away throughout the event during scheduled session breaks. Door prizes include a number of home energy audits, valuable gift cards and energy-related products. There is no charge to attend and light refreshments will be available.

"Saving energy saves you money. That's the bottom line", concluded Colburn, "and it's good for the environment and local economy as well."
