An evening reception is to follow at Zudy’s.  

On Saturday, those interested in Home Energy Efficiency will have the opportunity to learn tips that they can make to reduce their energy bills and get projects started through workshops presented by Scott Waterman of Alaska Housing Finance Corporation and Mark Masteller of UAA/Mat-Su Sustainable Energy Program.  Seward locals may be interested to note that Andy Baker, Project Manager of YourCleanEnergy LLC., will be on hand again this year to provide an update on renewable energy opportunities and savings through the District Heating Project.

Exhibitors will be providing the latest information on renewable energy systems as well as energy efficiency educational materials.  Participants are encouraged to vote on and enjoy submissions made by local students for the Seward Energy Forum & Fair Art Contest.  Winners from each age group will receive prizes donated by local tour companies who support renewable energy and energy efficiency efforts.

The Seward Alternative Energy Group was founded by the Seward Chamber of Commerce under the Seward Economic Growth Plan. SAEG is a group of local citizens who wish to encourage renewable energy and clean technology development in Alaska.  The function of SAEG is to educate, create awareness, support for their cause in promoting a community-wide energy plan.
