Pennsylvania Renewable Energy and Sustainable Living Festiva

We can come together here to share ideas on how we can make this idea work, where a local community on a county level produces most if not ALL of their basic needs. You can choose to do it alone, with your family or make it work for your community. We need to change our raw materials from dead-hydrocarbon sources to a living-carbohydrate sources (HEMP). You will be amazed to see how many thousands of everyday used products are made from this bountiful raw material resource.....

The 1st annual Renewable Energy and Sustainable Living Festival brings the industry together to demonstrate the benefits offered by all the sustainable energy options. A wide-ranging educational program offers the chance to debate the key issues, whilst a groundbreaking exhibition creates the perfect environment to evaluate the solutions - all under one roof. Exhibiting companies are expected to include suppliers of technologies for wind, bio energy, solar power generation, hydro, geothermal, and fuel cells, plus a number of complimentary products and services.

Talk to dozens and dozens of dealers, manufacturers and industry experts about incredible deals on the latest technologies in solar and wind energy that can actually spin your electric meter backwards.

The expo will feature exhibits and presentations on solar electricity and solar heating for your home, business, RV or boat, solar powered cooling, solar powered refrigeration, wind energy, fuel cells, solar powered pool pumping, electric vehicles and much much more.

Features exhibits of green business practices, natural foods, and tools for green living. Free workshops and lectures will be presented by professionals in the renewable energy industry.
