WHAT IS AN ENERGY EFFICIENCY FAIR?
Orono's Energy Efficiency Fair was created to share knowledge of cleaner energy options for everyday living, reduce energy bills, and reduce the use of fossil fuels.
- Provide lectures to attendees so they leave feeling capable of implementing efficient energy options into their homes.
- Bring local contractors and businesses to one location so residents can talk about project options with them.
Therefore, there will be a room for lectures and a room with vendors and exhibitors. Snacks and refreshments will be provided as well as raffle items! Providing information to local residents is a good first step in lowering fossil fuel consumption (not to mention reducing heating and electric bills!) and thus, reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
RAFFLE GIFT CARDS INCLUDE: The Nest, Orono Trampoline Park, DR Disc Golf, The Store Ampersand, Tacorita, Mainely Succulents, Fringe, OHOP, Margarita's, The Local, Woodman's Bar and Grill, Orono Brewing Company, and more!.
