It was twenty years ago today…
Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) held its first Energy Fair…
Today, the Energy Fair, which will be held June 19-21, 2009 at the ReNew the Earth Institute in Custer, Wis., is the world’s largest and longest-running energy education event.
“Each year, this fair inspires thousands of people to live more sustainably, empowering them with the tools and information they need to make the jump from awareness and interest to action,” said Don Wichert, director of Focus on Energy’s renewable energy program. “And as a sponsor of the fair, Focus on Energy is proud to be a part of such an important event and congratulates the MREA on two decades of success.”
According to Wichert, not only has the Energy Fair helped to dramatically increase the quantity and quality of renewable energy installations in Wisconsin and across the country, it’s given Focus a unique opportunity to reach out and connect with residents and businesses.
Don and Niels Wolter will be talking about Wisconsin’s Focus on Energy’s Renewable Energy Program in the Orange Tent at 2 p.m. on Friday, June 19th. Stop by and say hello.
Happy 20th birthday, MREA.
