This Electric Life

Great Turnout at the San Juan Energy Fair!

The first Energy Fair hosted by Islands Energy and OPALCO was a great success!  Visitors at the May 17th event received free energy kits, attended conservation workshops, and engaged in lively conversations with a variety of contractors to learn more about solar panel installations, home energy upgrades, financing programs from Islanders Bank, and electric vehicles, to name a few.

OPALCO Energy Savings Specialist Elisa Howard and MORE Committee member Peter Risser welcome guests at the San Juan Energy Fair on May 17th.

Amy Saxe and Elisa Howard from the OPALCO Energy Savings team enjoyed the chance to chat with members one  on one about our efficiency rebates, home energy audits, local energy generation, and the benefits of LED bulbs.

Some in attendance also participated in solar home tours organized by the M.O.R.E. Committee (Member Owned Renewable Energy).  Kids made door draft stoppers and participated in an energy fact “treasure hunt” for a chance to win prizes.

If you missed this one, please join as at the upcoming fairs on Lopez Island (Saturday, May 31st) and Orcas Island (Saturday, June 7th) from 10am to 3pm.

Due to limited availability and anticipated demand, reservations for the Home Energy Conservation Workshop and the Solar Home Tours are recommended. To reserve a spot, please call the Conservation District at 360-378-6621 or email to pre-register.
