Local group invites community to the second annual Solar Festival

After you participate in the Solar Home Tour and the Nevada Trails Day, plan to stop by the Solarbration Solar Festival on October 5. The Conservation District of Southern Nevada invites the community to attend the second annual Solarbration Solar Festival which will be held at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Lifelong Learning Center located at 8050 Paradise Road. The Festival runs from 2 — 7 p.m. The purpose of the festival is to blend art, technology, and outreach to promote renewable energy, inspire conservation, and support sustainable communities.

The Solar Festival, free to the public and all ages are welcome, will offer the community the opportunity to enjoy solar-powered art, live music, food, and fun. Plus there will be solar demonstrations, and the latest information on sustainable energy.

"We promise to deliver a fun-filled family event that will be a one-stop location for everything related to going solar," said Jon Wardlaw, Commission Chairman of the Conservation District of Southern Nevada. "We will have all the latest information regarding energy rebates, tax credits, solar financing, and lots of hands-on activities for all ages."

This year’s event will be "Bike Friendly" and promises to be even more fun and activity packed than last year. The Lifelong Learning Center is located right on the Windmill exit of the Clark County 215 trail. Bike clubs are encouraged to make a ride out of the event.
