Attend the Green Building Trade Show
The Park City Board of Realtors Environmental Issues Committee, Recycle Utah, and The Canyons will sponsor the Green Building Consumer Trade Show on Saturday, Nov. 8 from 10 a.m. to 3 at the Grand Summit Hotel. Free parking is available.
The trade show will feature exhibitors of solar power, photovoltaic panels, solar hot water, tankless water heaters, reclaimed and sustainable hardwoods, alternative energy cars, Energy Star® windows, smart home light controls, "dark skies" lighting, green builders & architects, incentives & rebates, green lending and more.
"There is tremendous excitement about this show because we have attracted exhibitors with real solutions that people can use right away," said Laurie Nadeau of the Environmental Issues Committee.
When asked if the downturn in the economy would have an impact, Nadeau said, "Absolutely. People are eager to invest in something like solar power now, get immediate relief to their cash flow, take advantage of rebates and tax incentives, and then have a strong potential to get their investment money back later when the market goes up."
More than 40 vendors will display new technologies designed to help homeowners save money and reduce their impact on the environment.
"This is a real how-to show," said Tom Ward, chairman of the Park City Board of Realtors Environmental Issues Committee. "We are grateful to The Canyons for donating the space and free parking for the event."
The Park City Board of Realtors Environmental Issues Committee has partnered with Recycle Utah to bring many workshops, lectures and events to the community. Proceeds from the dollar entrance fee to the trade show will go to the PCBOR’s Environmental Issues Committee to sponsor other environmental causes in the future.
All of the vendors’ entrance fees will be donated to Recycle Utah, Summit County’s community recycling center. For more information contact Laurie Nadeau from the PCBOR at (435) 659-6990.

Park City officials are preparing to take what is considered to be an important step in protecting the Treasure land from wildfires. City Hall in early June requested proposals from firms interested in the work.
