HEA energy, conservation fairs slated for November

Homer Electric Association is offering its members an opportunity to learn about the latest innovations in energy saving appliances, home improvements, and alternative energy.  

From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Nov. 3, HEA will host its fourth annual Energy and Conservation Fair at Kenai Middle School. The fair will be repeated the following Saturday, Nov. 10, at West Homer Elementary School.

The fairs will feature local vendors displaying a variety of energy conservation related products including appliances, recycling tips, construction materials, heating sources, lighting options and alternative energy information.
