LEAP Energy Fair Coming to Duxbury Saturday April 7

Waterbury, VT:  On Saturday, April 7 from 9 AM to 3 PM the volunteers of Waterbury LEAP (Local Energy Action Partnership) will be hosting annual LEAP Energy Fair at the Crossett Brook Middle School in Duxbury, VT.  Over the past 12 years this free, family-friendly event has grown into the largest energy fair in Vermont with 650 - 700 visitors (see photos below).
Attendees of the upcoming Fair will be able to tour more than 75 energy-related exhibits and talk with experts about solar power, heat pumps, weatherization, energy audits, geothermal, biomass, pellet stoves, electric vehicles, and much more.  Several outdoor exhibits will also be available including many electric vehicles.
Governor Phil Scott will be at the Fair to hand out the LEAP Green Community Awards to local students who have completed the best green energy projects.
The Fair will also include breakout sessions with special guest speakers on topics of special interest such as Heat Pumps, Going Solar, Electric Vehicles and Sustainable Transportation.
“We’ve all had a long, snowy winter,” said Waterbury LEAP Chair Duncan McDougall, “and many Vermonters have spent a great deal on energy.  The LEAP Energy Fair is a wonderful opportunity for hundreds of people to attend a free event where they can talk with dozens of experts, get their questions answered, and learn many ways to reduce their fuel bills and save money.”
The Fair is family-friendly and includes activities for children such as a free show by Marko the Magician at 11 AM , and free ice cream. There will be food and drinks available from local vendors.
Back by popular demand, thanks to students in the Crossett Brook Sustainability Program, the LEAP Energy Fair will provide free electronics recycling for all attendees.
