What better day to tout renewable “green” energy than the day when the wearing of the green is most appropriate?
Farmers, small business entrepreneuers and energy experts will be on hand at the State Capitol on Wednesday (St. Patrick’s Day) for Homegrown Energy Day.
The event is scheduled to start at 11 a.m. in the senate parlor of the Capitol, with outdoor displays of renewable energy projects at 30 State Street, near the band shell at the top of State Street.
Displays will include a model wind turbine, a model manure digester, solar panels, a biomass gasifier in action, a biogas vehicle fueling trailer, bales of switchgrass and wood pellets, and the real eight-foot-long tip of an industrial wind turbine blade.
The purpose of the event, according to Clean Wisconsin, is to demonstrate to legislators the economic importance of passing strong policies to foster the growth of clean, renewable energy.
