This is the 26th year that The Energy Fair is taking place in Custer, Wisconsin. Why come to Custer this June? One reason is the amazing amount of workshops that are free with admission; The Fair has plenty of opportunities for people of all backgrounds:
Free, one hour workshops
$30, three hour extended workshops
Free continuing education for solar professionals and architects/builders
Attendees can choose from over 250 free, one-hour workshops with topics ranging from sustainable agriculture to harnessing wind for energy. New topics include whipping your own Matcha by Rishi Tea, a Milwaukee-based tea company.
Learn about Tesla’s clean energy solutions, and building a ‘tiny house.’ With all the hype about batteries these days, learn how batteries work and can be integrated into renewable energy systems and so much more. There are even workshops for kids in the Rainbow’s End tent!
This year’s three hour extended workshops include Aquaculture Technologies for Small Farms and Schools, Herbal First Aid, Living Off-Grid, Homebrew Wind, and more! Prices are $30 and advanced tickets can be purchased online, over the phone, or at The Energy Fair in the Marketplace.
The Energy Fair is the place for professionals to earn continuing education while connecting with renewable energy and sustainably focused businesses, enjoying music, and learning from other fun workshops all in the same day. Specifically for the solar industry, solar professionals have the opportunity to earn NABCEP credits while learning the latest solar products from leading solar equipment manufacturers and distributors.
Architects and builders can earn continuing education credits while learning about topics such as high performance wall systems, why trees are stronger than wood, and solar ready construction thanks largely to Seventhwave (formerly Energy Center of Wisconsin) a provider of GBCI approved courses. Beyond continuing education, architects and builders will have a wide variety of professional development and alternative construction courses to choose from, all free with admission!
