Local group invites community to the third annual Solar Festival

The Conservation District of Southern Nevada invites the community to attend the third 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 noon — 4 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 Chris Magee, 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.”

Again this year, the event will be “Bike Friendly” and cyclists are encouraged to ride to the event. Bike clubs are encouraged to make a ride out of the event. This year 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. If you are interested in a volunteer opportunity at the event, visit the Solarbration.
