CAL EXPO, California State Fair, Solar, Wind, Renewable News and Commentary By_Green Earl

COME ONE, COME ALL! TO THE CALIFORNIA STATE FAIR AT SACRAMENTO!!!

Solar, Wind, Bio, Energy News And Commentary By_Green Earl, 30 year Pioneer In Conservation & Solar Energy

Green Earl here, reporting from the California State Fair in Sacramento...We are
having a great time here. Tens of thousands of people, streaming by concessions, rides and our Green Energy displays, at booth 600 and 601, Vinyl Designs, Inc.

Our display is rather nice. Small house, fully sided with windows, exterior front door, and patio cover off the entrance, other window samples. We are one of the
very few at the fair, invited and in the show. The powers that be here, are not
that excited about window and siding folks, and limit their involvement here, as does the $4 or $5,000 thousand required for booth space here, we have a double space.

I have managed to get about a dozen what I would call real solid leads on vinyl siding and windows, patio covers and the like. I start setting and running those today, while the fair continues. It last until the 7th of Sept.

I've never seen a bigger event, or a longer one. It seems to be about a 50 acre fair, but actually might be bigger, all filled with a steady stream of humanity.

Something to see if you've never been there.
