"The possibility of continuing drought conditions, potential electricity brownouts and blackouts, volatility in energy markets, and increasing environmental concerns in the years ahead have put an exclamation mark on the need to be resource smart and more self-reliant," said Russel Smith, the event's co-organizer. "Taking control of at least some of your own energy, water, food, and health needs makes more sense every day. The Renewable Energy Roundup provides information, products, and services to help."
