The 2011 Eastern Oregon Solar Fair is sponsored by the Oregon Rural Action (ORA) Energy Team. Over 100 people attended the 2010 Solar Fair which included "going solar" workshops, a solar tour, and a vendor fair.

  • Beyond the Basics of Going Solar workshop
    June 18th, 10-11AM La Grande Public Library
    Did you come to the Basics of Going Solar workshop in 2010? Well this workshop builds on what you learned last year with ample time for asking professionals specific questions about your site, system and needs. The goal is to help you make the final step to going solar.
  • Vendor Fair & Simple Solar Demos
    June 18th, 9AM-12PM, La Grande Farmers Market
    Local and regional vendors of energy efficiency & conservation, solar and other green building technologies and services will gather at the La Grande Farmers Market so you can connect with your future solar installer or green building contractor. Oregon Rural Action members will also be demonstrating solar contraptions you can build at home including a solar cooker and solar dryer. These are great demos for kids.
  • Solar Home & Business Open House
    June 18th, 1-4PM; various sites around Union County
    Four homes and businesses will be open for you to vist from 1-4PM on June 18th. Check out actual systems in action and talk to the homeowners and contractors that installed them.

    June 19th, time TBA; North Powder
    Visit a net-zero energy home in North Powder owned by Oregon Rural Action members. This home integrates the best energy efficiency and conservation technology with passive solar, solar panels and more. Visiting this home is inspirational because the homeowners have a grand plan for powering electric vehicles! A van will leave Max Square in La Grande to take people to this site.
