Learn how to Spin your Electric Meter Backwards
at Salem’s 2nd Annual Living Green & Renewable Energy Fair
Saturday, June 13 - 10am-3pm
Commonwealth Solar rebates along with State and Federal tax credits are providing Massachusetts residents and business owners the opportunity to spin their electric meters backwards. Learn how to get off the grid and much more at the 2nd Annual Living Green & Renewable Energy Fair. The fair will take place on Saturday, June 13th, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in and around Old Town Hall in Salem.

The fair will include numerous exhibits from local, regional and national companies, a Kids “Green Scene”, a Green Speaker Series and a free screening of “Addicted to Plastic” at CinemaSalem. The fair will feature everything from cars that run on waste vegetable oil to free one-on-one consultations on how to green your home.

In recognition of the fair, the City of Salem will celebrate June 13th as Clean Energy Day, and all Salem citizens are encouraged to sign up for Clean Energy Choice, a Massachusetts Technology Collaborative program (MTC). For more information on this program, bring your National Grid electric bill to the Renewable Energy Taskforce exhibit at the fair.
