The Center for the Advancement of Sustainable Energy (CASE) at James Madison University is excited to announce and host the first annual Rocktown Energy Festival, scheduled to be hosted alongside the Harrisonburg Farmers Market on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021. The mission of this FREE event is to “Promote a Clean Energy Future for the Valley,” with the goal being to inform Rockingham County community members on their sustainable living options through energy-related programming.
Festival participants will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities throughout the event, including speaker sessions and workshops, informative presentations, family-friendly education activities, the Solar Home Showcase for attendees to meet neighbors who have already gone solar, solar energy informational programming for Spanish speakers, and networking booths featuring renewable energy installers, green building developers, electric vehicle owners, solar homeowners, and other energy stakeholders. This event is being put on by the Center for the Advancement of Sustainable Energy (CASE) at James Madison University. CASE focuses on research, education, and outreach to advance sustainable energy on JMU’s campus, in Rockingham County, and across the state. More information about CASE and the Rocktown Energy Festival can be found at www.jmu.edu/case.
Virginia Clean Cities will be running an exhibition booth on all things electric vehicles during the event! Multiple EVs will be brought in to showcase, along with handouts and other educational materials. VCC will also hold a presentation during the event with an in-depth discussion of the current state of EV ownership, charging infrastructure, consumer EV incentives, and much more. We hope to see you there!
