The event includes over 50 BGBG member booths and interesting hands-on activities to get down and dirty with your kids. Meet with BGBG’s architects, builders, solar specialists, heating/cooling experts, energy auditors, and many more local green building contractors and service providers to see how they can help you with your summer projects. There will also be information available on local rebates, incentives, and programs you’ll want to leverage to ensure your dollars are spent wisely.
A new offering at this year’s fair will be the “Ask an Expert” booth; where individuals will receive 20 minutes of one-on-one attention (for free) with one of the member experts to discuss their specific projects. From 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. the experts listed above, plus renewable energy specialists, landscape designers, and interior materials specialists will be on-hand to discuss your project and give you specific advice! The more details on budget and plans you can bring the better so they can help you get the most for your budget and personal goals.
