MREA Energy Fair

If you landed on this blog, you are most likely looking for information on sustainability, energy-efficient remodeling, and/or deep-energy retrofits.

For today’s serving of information, I will beat someone else’s drum.

The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) in Custer, Wisconsin organizes an Energy Fair every mid June (this summer, it’s June 21-23). And this year is a big year because it is the 30th anniversary of the Energy Fair.

The MREA describes this year’s Energy Fair as follows:

Celebrating 30 years of bringing people together to learn about sustainability and clean energy, connect with others, and take action toward a sustainable future. Featuring 200+ Workshops, 200+ Exhibits, Farm & Garden Tours, Artisan Market, Yoga, Live Music, food and fun all weekend long!

Cathy and I have been attending for a number of years and keep going back because the event is jam-packed with good resources, sessions, and workshops. If you are a professional in the green building industry, this fair is the perfect merging of fun and work. Or, if you are a homeowner, it is the perfect amalgamation of fun and learning.

If you plan on attending, you probably will run into me because I will conduct four workshops that detail our efforts, research, decision-making, and execution of our deep-energy retrofit. Information regarding the workshops is listed below:

We hope to see you at the Energy Fair!
