Sustainable Energy Road Shows

How sustainable is our energy use and can we really make a difference?
Whale Coast Conservation is bringing its traveling Energy Expo – funded by a grant from the National Lottery Distribution Trust Fund – to various venues in the Overberg. It’s free to all and everyone is invited to come and find out more about energy, how you can save on the cost of your electricity and what to do if you don’t have any electricity.
We will show you how it’s possible to use the sun’s energy and the energy of the wind and the waves. We will demonstrate how to cook a meal with just a few sticks; and how to come home to some hot water without spending any money; how to use electricity more efficiently; and there are cute toys that work on solar energy just for the fun of it.  There’s even a bungee-jumping Bear that teaches us about different kinds of energy.
We will tell you how to save energy and gradually move towards sustainable energy sources. This could also give you a few ideas to save some money and, in the process, also help to do some good to the environment.
So come to the Expo and find out more about energy and how to gradually become less dependent on fossil fuels like coal and oil, and have a whole lot of fun in the process.
The first mini-expo is happening on Wednesday 30 May at Laerskool Gansbaai and on 6 June at the Community Hall in Stanford, both from 14h00 to19h00, with a talk on sustainable energy sources at 17h30.  Thereafter we go to Mount Pleasant, Hermanus, Kleinmond and Grabouw. Watch this space for details.  All are welcome – it’s free.
