Conveniently located at the Best Western Royal Plaza Trade Center, the Expo will be easily accessible from routes 20, 90, 495, 9, and 290. Ample free parking is available.

The Solar and Wind Expo Massachusetts will feature companies knowledgeable in renewable energy solutions. Experts in this evolving field will conduct valuable educational seminars for Expo attendees on topics such as: Financial and Environmental Benefits of Switching to Renewable Energy, Electric Vehicles, Financing Programs Available Right Now, Green Building Design, Energy Affordability in a Time of Change, Wind Power 101, The Benefits of Weatherization, Geothermal 101, and more.

"This fall is a great time for this kind of show in Massachusetts," said George Lopez, executive director of The Solar and Wind Expo. "The technology is maturing and becoming more affordable and there is consumer interest in saving money and reducing their carbon footprint. Renewable energy credits are very attractive now in Massachusetts. The consumer can really save some money. Now is the time to make these investments, and the Best Western Royal Plaza Trade Center on Nov. 4-6 is the place to learn more."

Massachusetts has a long history as a renewable energy friendly state. The SREC market is stable in a way that is unique in the United States. There are also abundant federal, state and local incentives to encourage consumers to invest in renewable energy.
