The Seeing RED in Communities Presentation will showcase four organizations that are bringing people together to solve sustainability challenges through education, relationship building, and community action. Each organization will give a 10-minute presentation as part of the Sunday keynote address from 1-2pm on June 23, 2013 at the 24th Annual Energy Fair in Custer, Wisconsin.
And the best part… The live audience will select, by popular vote, one of the organizations to win a fully installed solar electric system!

The Grand Prize
The winning organization will receive a fully-installed, 2 Kilowatt (DC-rated capacity) utility interactive solar electric system. The solar system, valued at $10,000, would provide about ½ of the annual electric power needs for a typical energy efficient home.
