FREDERICKSBURG, Texas, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — At the 13th annual Renewable Energy Roundup & Green Living Fair (The Roundup) we’ll be filling the grounds with exhibitors and packing the tents with outstanding speakers and panels on topics for green lifestyles. People from across Texas, from communities large and small converge on Fredericksburg annually in search of ideas for a cleaner, healthier, more sustainable and energy efficient lifestyle. The Roundup is a place to see new ideas in action; discover new organic farming techniques, learn about green building and remodeling, taste fresh organic foods and to test, explore and interact with products and services for living sustainably. The Roundup takes place at Market Square, 126 West Main St. in Fredericksburg, September 27 – 29, 2013.
The fair is an annual Texas favorite and the largest all-sustainable fair in the south. David Bebeau, CEO, Sunrise Solar recently said, “I’ve been coming to the Roundup since it started in 1999 and I have had the same booth space for 12 years now. It is one of the most enjoyable shows we do for both exhibitors and the participants.”
Texans seeking green lifestyles and concerned about drought and the environment have come to the Roundup yearly to hear national leaders and local experts; to participate in workshops; and to enjoy races and other creative events. Among the informative focus panels taking place over the three-day event, the Texas Co-Op Energy panel will have representatives from Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative and Pedernales Electric Cooperative with the panel’s moderator joining us from the State Energy Conservation Office, SECO.
