THE SOLAR AND WIND EXPO TO GO FULL STEAM AHEAD IN 2012

Dates set for Maryland and Pennsylvania Trade Shows

The Solar and Wind Expo, the mid-Atlantic's premier renewable energy trade show, has set the dates for shows in 2012 in Maryland and Pennsylvania.


Energized by its success in 2010 and 2011 in Maryland and in 2011 in Pennsylvania, the Solar and Wind Expo will bring the exciting technologies that tap Nature's renewable energy sources directly to consumers in the form of exhibits and seminars. The goal is to help green energy companies grow their markets and to help consumers save money while being good to the environment.

The Expo is dedicated to promoting renewable energy, including solar, wind, and geothermal, biomass and hydroelectric power. The exhibitors include manufacturers, installers, and lenders.

The Solar and Wind Expo Maryland 2012 will be held May 11-13 at the State Fairgrounds in Timonium – near Baltimore – serving Maryland, Delaware, the District of Columbia, and Virginia.

The Solar and Wind Expo Pennsylvania 2012 will be held June 29-July 1 at the Valley Forge Convention Center in King of Prussia, serving Southeastern Pennsylvania, the Delaware Valley and Central New Jersey.

Along with the exhibits, admission to the shows includes access to seminars for both consumers and professionals in the renewable energy field.

The Solar and Wind Expo is known as a comprehensive source of information for consumers about sustainable energy and related industries.

"Our exhibitors tell us that the people who attend our shows are very interested in investing today, even given the current economic climate." said George Lopez, executive director of Expo. "And, people want to help the country break its dependence on foreign oil while doing good things for the environment."
