DEP Energy Exhibit Visits Erie Home & Garden Expo March 13-16

The Department of Environmental Protection will display its interactive “DEP at Home” exhibit during the Erie Home and Garden Expo at the Bayfront Convention Center from March 13 to 16.
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.
The three-room exhibit has a bathroom/laundry area, kitchen and garage that showcase décor, 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 Honda Civic powered by compressed natural gas.
The Erie Home and Garden Expo features hundreds of national and local exhibitors and will include do-it -yourself clinics and a fully furnished and landscaped home built inside the Bayfront Convention Center. Admission is $7 and free for children under 10.
DEP created the DEP at Home exhibit through a grant provided by the U.S. Department of Energy’s State Energy Program. Since its debut in January 2013, the exhibit has been exposed to more than 1 million Pennsylvanians and has won numerous awards for excellence.
