One of the region’s largest gatherings around renewable energy is coming to Wisconsin this weekend, just outside Stevens Point. It’s the Midwest Renewable Energy Fair.
Ellie Jackson, events coordinator at the MREA, says she expects up to 20,000 people to descend on the small town of Custer.
“The energy fair is a community of people that come together to learn and share all aspects of renewable energy and energy efficiency and sustainable living. So it’s an educational experience but also a really fun event.”
