"The Solar and Wind Expo is bringing the public the latest news and information regarding green energy," said Solar and Wind Expo Executive Director George Lopez, addressing consumers who will attend the Expo. "There will be something for everybody. Your questions will be answered and you'll learn about affordable new technologies on the market now."
