Description:
SustainFloyd and Apple Ridge Farm presents the 2nd Annual Floyd Energy Fest on Saturday, July 14, 2018 at Chantilly Farm in Floyd, VA.

July 14th will be the day and Chantilly Farm the place to power up and turn on to renewable energy at Floyd Energy Fest. The Floyd Energy Fest is an all-day event with speakers, exhibits, vendors and food. Hear experts present fascinating information on solarizing your home, using energy efficient systems, building green residential structures and producing power with wind energy in Virginia. And, check out a Tesla electric car, presented by Sustainable Blacksburg.

Apple Ridge Farm will offer tours throughout the day to experience the E-base USA: Blue Ridge, an off-grid solar and wind-powered classroom, housed in a 1917 boxcar donated by the National Railway Historical Society. There will be a fascinating nature walk and a kid zone for children with crafts and activities. SustainFloyd’s Solar Voltzwagon, a solar-powered wagon that provides electricity for many local events, will also be on hand for visitors to see.

Plenty! will offer a menu of local foods to purchase. Red Rooster coffee will be there and Cocoa Mia will cool off visitors with yummy ice pops. Many vendors and exhibitors such as Bath Fitters, Creative Conservation, Tinbenders, Inc. and Pinewood Wind will answer questions.
