Member learns about heating, cooling and insulation at Energy Fair.

Singing River Electric brings Energy Fairs to the local communities

Singing River Electric members who attended the Helena Energy Fair on April 10, the Fontainebleau/Ocean Springs Energy Fair on April 24 and the Greene County Energy Fair on May 15 left with knowledge and skills to conquer many energy-efficiency projects in their homes.

These events featured information on home improvements, lighting, heating and cooling, the cooperative’s SmartHub app, solar power, and electric vehicles.

“Our goal is to bring custom advice and expert knowledge to our members where they live,” said Singing River Electric Manager of Energy Services and Economic Development Nick DeAngelo. “Each year we work to move the Energy Fairs around so our members from different parts of the service area can all participate locally at some point.”

Attendees saw and touched actual wall sections with different insulation types, received one-on-one advice on DIY efficiency projects, and learned about lighting brightness, color and watts used.

In addition to home building and efficiency advice, Singing River Electric welcomed the Cooperative Energy electric vehicles to this year’s Energy Fairs. Members learned the difference between All-Electric Vehicles (AEVs) and Plug-in Hybrids (PHEVs), and experienced the look, feel and sound of an electric car.

The final 2019 Energy Fair will take place on June 27 from 3-6 p.m. at Singing River Electric’s Lucedale office.

As an electric cooperative, Singing River Electric is member-driven and built by the communities we serve. For more information, visit or join our social media conversations on Facebook/Instagram (SingingRiverElectric) and Twitter (SRECooperative).
