"Record setting drought impacts, food quality and cost concerns, electric generation adequacy problems, and ongoing worrisome environmental issues, are almost impossible to ignore. More folks are realizing every day that taking control of at least some of their own water, food, energy, and health needs makes more sense every day," said Russel Smith, Executive Director of Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association and co-organizer. "The fair provides an opportunity for anyone to gain invaluable information and acquire the products, technologies and techniques to accomplish that."

The Renewable Energy Roundup is co-organized by Texas Renewable Energy Industries Association (TREIA) and Texas Center for Policy Studies (TCPS). Event proceeds benefit TREIA and TCPS, two non-profits striving to increase understanding and awareness of renewable energy applications and to promote their wide use. For more details logon to, call 830-997-2350 or email:
