Members of all ages learn to save energy.
Want to test drive an Electric Vehicle (EV), tour solar homes, and learn about the latest ways to save energy?
OPALCO invites you to join us at the Energy Fairs.
This is an interesting and fun way to understand the sources of electric power and to be aware of your own personal energy usage habits and savings options. The OPALCO Energy Savings team, the M.O.R.E. (Member Owned Renewable Energy) committee, and Islands Energy will be participating. In addition to energy efficiency and conservation workshops, there will be free kids activities, raffle prizes, and much more!
