Illinois Renewable Energy Association receives grant
From press release
The Illinois Renewable Energy Association, Inc. (IREA) has received a three-year grant from the Illinois Clean Energy Community Foundation (ICECF) to continue the Illinois Renewable Energy and Sustainable Lifestyle Fair.
The fair, now in its ninth year, has been referred to by the ICECF as a “respected and expected event.” It has also been recognized by state energy organizations and agencies as Illinois’ premier renewable energy event. It has grown annually and now features nearly 60 workshops, more than 100 exhibits, seminars for special interests and field trips.
The 2010 fair will be Aug. 7-8 at the Ogle County Fairgrounds near Oregon, Ill. It provides an opportunity for people who are interested in using renewable energy in their own lives to meet those who provide equipment and services, and for those who are interested in living a compatible lifestyle to learn about products and techniques to help them.
