Cavendish To Hold Town Energy Fair

Saturday, Oct. 1 will be all about energy in Cavendish. The southern Vermont community is holding a free Town Energy Fair that day at the Cavendish Town Elementary School, on Main Street.The Cavendish Town Energy Committee is hosting the fair, where residents can learn about "weatherization, solar energy, energy efficient homes, heat pumps, composting and other money saving ways to help the planet," a press release states.

"Whether you own or rent, there are many ways for you to save money," according to the event announcement.

Fair organizers say experts will be on hand for everything from the latest energy-saving technologies to simple home weatherization techniques.

"Many people don’t realize that the biggest home money saving is not in new technologies to produce energy, but in simple weatherization such as stopping air leaks," the press release states. "By increasing insulation, adding weather stripping to doors and windows, sealing around foundations and attics, and similar measures, you can save money and be much more comfortable in summer and in winter."

To find out more, stop by the Cavendish Town Energy Fair, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Oct. 1.
