Joule Solar Energy, a local New Orleans B-Corporation, will be exhibiting solar products and offering free energy consultations for gardeners, homeowners and green living enthusiasts. Keith Gibson, Marketing Manager at Joule, says, “We participate in a lot of local events around the state and always enjoy participating in events at City Park. They (CIty Park) take great strides to bring in events that provide tools and knowledge to help promote and beautify New Orleans while being environmentally friendly.” Gibson invites everyone attending the show to stop by Joule Solar Energy’s booth and inquire about the latest trends in solar gardening and solar canopies for your home or business.
