Tiny solar house to be displayed at Green Solutions EXPO
As frustrations grow over the proliferation of monster houses in Newton and elsewhere, visitors to Newton Centre on Oct. 18 will have a chance to explore a growing alternative trend in modern living: a solar-powered “tiny house” that occupies a mere 8-by-16-foot footprint.
The self contained, “tiny house” will be on exhibit, along with several plug-in eclectic vehicles and dozens of other green exhibits, at Newton’s annual Harvest Fair Sunday, Oct. 18 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the Newton Center parking lot.
The green-themed exhibits are part of the annual Green Solutions EXPO, happening during Newton’s popular Harvest Fair. The EXPO is produced by the Newton-Needham Chamber in partnership with the City of Newton and is sponsored by the Newton Solar Challenge and Barn Raise Energy, a Newton-based company with a social-impact mission of increasing solar adoption and ownership.
