The Solar and Wind Expo is the premier event for those who are looking to conserve energy and integrate renewable technologies such as solar, wind and geothermal energies both for financial reasons and for reducing their carbon footprint.The Solar and Wind Expo is the place to learn how to migrate and upgrade your old systems to cleaner, more Earth friendly and renewable energy systems, thus helping to make green a reality. NOW is the time to increase the amount of electricity being generated from alternative zero-pollution or low-pollution technology sources – including solar, wind, hydro-power, and geothermal.

The massive amount of energy it takes to fuel Maryland’s economy provides enormous opportunities for energy savings.

Through energy efficiency and renewable energy incentive programs, Marylanders can save money, year after year, and further the State’s goal of reducing power consumption statewide by 15 percent by 2015. Homeowners, contractors, developers and utility providers have the opportunity to reduce their energy costs and consumption by implementing simple efficiency solutions – such as replacing standard light bulbs with compact fluorescents – to more complex renewable energy solutions – such as installing solar photovoltaic systems, geothermal heat-pumps or wind turbines. Renewable energy creates jobs while increasing the energy supply, thus contributing to lowering electricity cost for American families, communities and businesses.
