Piedmont Alternative Energy Expo This Weekend!

June 17, 2009


This weekend is the Piedmont Alternative Energy Expo, to be held Saturday June 20th from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. It’ll be at the Brumfield Elementary School, 550 Alwington Blvd, Warrenton, VA 20186. Adults are $5, children and students are free!

I had every intention of doing a booth this year, and then my season exploded and I just got too busy to plan for it. Lesson learned for next year. That said, I’m still planning to attend this Saturday; if you see a big guy who looks like a kid in a candy store, that may well be me. Come say hi! They have over 50 exhibits planned, including solar race cars:Solar Car race


Larry Billings, of Larry’s Garage, will be showing off the truck he converted to run on electrical power:EXPO 2008 020

…and there will be, according to the speaker sheet I received, ten speakers at various times throughout the day. Fellow Culpeper Chamber of Commerce  member Andrew Grigsby, of Commonwealth Sustainability Works, will be giving a talk titled “The top ten cost-effective energy improvements for any home.”

All in all, this year should have something for everyone: practical information and resources for the folks who just want to live a little greener (and maybe save some money at the same time), and inspiration for those of us who find stuff like gasifiers and solar electricity to be the coolest things ever. Hopefully I’ll see you there!

    questionauthorits- if you leave a comment that contributes nothing to the discussion, but is clearly just creating an opportunity to create backlinks to your site- I’ll post your comment, but I’ll strip out your url. I wouldn’t let someone sell fake Rolexes in my front yard, you’re not shilling in my space.
