Solar Energy Fair Comes to Creston
Farmers, business owners, and homeowners interested in going solar will have an opportunity to hear answers to common questions and see solar technology in action at a Solar Energy Fair on Saturday, August 27th from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m at Creston High School. The fair is designed to be a “one-stop-shop” for people considering solar PV for electricity production at their farm, home, or business. Pre-registration is free and encouraged online at www.pathfindersrcd.org/solarenergy.
The fair will feature vendors and presentations on the basics of solar electric technology, questions to consider when planning a project, examples of how to finance projects, and expo area with local solar energy and related booths. In the afternoon, go on a virtual solar energy “crawl” and see multiple locations that have installed solar energy technology and find out how it’s working for them.
Solar energy prices have dropped significantly in the last few years and tax incentives are available to make an investment in solar energy economically feasible. Come to the Creston Solar Energy Fair to see how solar energy contributes to the protection of your environment while giving your pocketbook a break.
The event is free, open to the public, and family friendly. It is part of a series of fairs hosted at four locations around Iowa. The Solar Energy Fairs are made possible with funding from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources REAP Continuing Education Program (CEP) and with support from Southern Iowa RCD, Iowa Heartland RCD, Limestone Bluffs RCD, and Pathfinders RCD.
