The Energy Efficiency Expo (e3) will be at LC on Saturday, March 3 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Elliot & Rosel Schewel Hall. The e3 is a public forum to learn about cost-saving tips and ways to reduce your energy bill.
More than $500 in prizes and giveaways will be at the expo, which is sponsored by the Leadership Lynchburg's Economic Growth & Impact Team.
The expo will feature guest speakers, breakout sessions, and other interactions with vendors and utilities that will help inform consumers on how to better save their money when it comes to energy usage. AEP also will provide free energy audits for those who attend and sign up.
For hands-on learning, the Institute for Advanced Learning and Research's STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Mobile Learning Lab will be on hand. The lab's activities include, for example, a human-powered generator equipped with a wheel that students turn to compare the amount of energy used to light an incandescent light bulb with the amount used to power an energy-efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulb.
