Celebrating TEN Years!

The Tenth Annual Piedmont Earth Day Fair is just six weeks away, and all the details are falling into place for a celebration to remember! This year's theme “The Power of Bright Ideas” focuses on energy and its impact on the environment. Workshops and demonstrations will address questions, like: Is my home or business a candidate for solar energy? How could I plant a tree to reduce my energy bills? What else can I do to increase the comfort and efficiency of my home?
