From 2GreenEnergy Contributor Brian McGowan: Celebrating Energy Independence with Waste Heat Exchangers

Energy Independence with Waste Heat ExchangersYesterday, I attended the Energy Independence Day festival at Waste Oil Recyclers location.  It was very nice and well attended with food and music.
