The Great New York State Fair in Syracuse is renowned for its delicious treats, charming farm animals, exhilarating rides, and, of course, the iconic butter sculpture. But this year, amidst all the traditional fun, you will also have the chance to explore the future of clean energy at the “Clean Energy Corner,” proudly presented by the New York League of Conservation Voters Education Fund (NYLCVEF) and its partner organizations, and located at booth #133 in the Center of Progress Building (to the right of the Sand Sculpture).

At NYLCVEF, we believe in the power of education and awareness to drive positive change. That’s why we’ve teamed up with a group of terrific partners, including the Alliance for Clean Energy NY (ACE NY), Alliance for a Green Economy (AGREE), Climate Change Awareness and Action (CCAA), New Yorkers for Clean Power (NYCP), and United Solar Energy Supporters (USES USA). Together, we’re bringing you an engaging and interactive experience about the ongoing renewable energy revolution happening in New York State.

Here’s what’s in store:

  • Games and Activities: Bring the kids!! We’ve curated an array of games and activities that cater to both children and adults. Explore, learn, and have a blast while uncovering the wonders of clean energy.
  • Stay Informed: Want to stay updated on the latest developments in the world of renewable energy? Visitors can sign up to receive information from NYLCVEF as well as all the participating organizations. This is your chance to stay connected and make a difference.

  • Vote for the Future: Which renewable technology is the most fascinating to you? Now’s your chance to voice your opinion! Participate in our informal voting activity and let us know which renewable technology you’re most eager to learn about.
