Milford Renewable Energy Fair Draws a Crowd

Sarah Cutler

April 30, 2012

An electric vehicle endurance race originally organized by Andy Swapp, an instructor at Milford High School, to help students connect with players in the renewable energy field has turned in to the annual Milford Renewable Energy Fair. The fair just concluded its fourth year and attracted approximately 610 people from all over Utah. The Southwest Utah Renewable Energy Center (SUTREC) sponsored the fair.

SUTREC unveiled its new Renewable Energy Education Trailer, which is designed to take learning on the road. The trailer features a 1-kilowatt solar array, a 100-watt wind turbine, access to a full battery bank and other teaching technology. It serves as a mobile classroom to train and educate individuals and communities about renewable energy, energy efficiency and alternative fuels, including several functional and accessible renewable technologies.

Along with the SUTREC trailer were approximately 33 booths and displays set up by businesses, nonprofit organizations and government agencies displaying the latest in renewable energy, energy efficiency, biomass and alternative fuel technologies including several natural gas and electric powered vehicles.

“Renewable energy can insure that you are being a little bit cleaner in your use of energy,” said Swapp. “Fossil fuels will be here a long time and are a very valued commodity. Renewable energy will help to extend the longevity of our fossil fuel supply. Let’s not pit one energy against another; let’s just be positive about the path we are on—others will follow.”
