Pennsylvania DEP To Unveil New Interactive Exhibit At 2013 Farm Show

Jan. 6 Event Opportunity to Meet Energy-Efficiency Experts from around State

HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Department of Environmental Protection will introduce a new "DEP at Home" exhibit during the 97 th Pennsylvania Farm Show in the Main Hall of the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center in Harrisburg from Jan. 5 to 12.

DEP at Home is an interactive, educational exhibit fashioned into a home structure that features practices and products promoting energy efficiency and sustainable building materials as well as environmentally friendly and Pennsylvania-produced products for the home. 

"Energy efficiency starts in the home," DEP Secretary Mike Krancer said. "This exhibit will be a valuable tool to teach residents about simple, common-sense ways they can increase their home's efficiency, reduce the amount of energy they consume and save money. We are delighted to roll it out at the Farm Show."

The three-room exhibit has a bathroom/laundry area, kitchen and living room that showcase decor, appliances and building materials that help improve energy efficiency, water conservation, radon awareness, air quality and other staples of environmental awareness. There is also an outdoor space that includes a dog house with green roofing and a bicycle.

The theme of this year's farm show is "Made in PA. It makes a difference." The DEP at Home exhibit will feature many Pennsylvania products, including fiber cement siding headquartered in Valley Forge, Chester County; cork flooring based in the Lancaster, Lancaster County; an Energy Star window from Vandergrift, Westmoreland County; and insulation made in the Erie, Erie County, and Allentown, Lehigh County.

On Sunday, Jan. 6, DEP will host a "Meet the Experts" event from 2 to 6 p.m. with representatives from the companies that donated products to the exhibit available to answer Farm Show visitors' questions and offer additional energy-efficiency tips.

DEP will showcase the new exhibit, which was created through a grant from the U.S. Department of Energy's State Energy Program, at home shows, schools and other educational events to continue to promote the benefits of energy efficiency and sustainable building practices.
