Solar Fest

Solar Fest ’14

solarfest5

Solar San Antonio invites the community to its free, annual Solar Fest from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, October 4 at the William R. Sinkin Eco Centro Building to learn about solar energy and living green.

The William R. Sinkin Eco Centro Building is San Antonio College’s newest community building. The building is in the process of becoming LEED-certified and focuses on promoting a sustainable lifestyle through workshops and other efforts.

Homeowners will have the opportunity to interact directly with solar installers and other green building and home improvement professionals.

A wide range of environmental organizations and sustainable vendors will be present. Schools will show off their latest solar projects and visitors can check out various electric vehicles.

Visitors can also take home a free tree, enjoy the HEB-sponsored Kid’s Zone, and grab some food from the CPS Energy Food Truck Alley.

Children can learn about solar through a UV bead bracelet making activity organized by the San Antonio Children’s Museum or by racing solar cars from Solar San Antonio.

Attendees are encouraged to bike, carpool, or use public transportation to the event.
