WESTBOROUGH – Community members gathered at Mill Pond Primary School on Saturday for Westborough’s first energy fair.
The fair was organized by Sustainable Westborough and the Westborough Rotary Club.
“I think it’s been good so far, and I’m really optimistic that a lot of people will make it through,” Sustainable Westborough Vice President Cheryl Thomas told the Community Advocate at the start of the event.
Sustainable Westborough is a municipal advisory board that promotes environmental responsibility and energy efficiency in Westborough. It works in concert with the city’s committees and departments and the Select Board.
The energy fair aimed to promote many of these fundamental messages of Sustainable Westborough.
As Thomas described it, the fair, which was planned by a small group of people, took on a life of its own.
“We involved schools, local nonprofits, industry experts, state agencies — everyone we could think of had something valuable that people could learn from,” he said. she declared.
The fair featured speakers and booths, highlighting groups like Zero Waste Westborough and Westborough Connects, state organizations like Mass Save, and projects like the new Annie E. Fales Elementary Schooll, which is designed to be a net zero building.
The organizers thanked the sponsors of this event, including National Grid and Peregrine Energy Group.
