Begley will also be available to answer questions, sign autographs and offer advice on green living and building.

    “I began my journey on sustainable living back in 1970 and am so excited to have this opportunity to educate others on how they can make simple lifestyle changes and live green,” said Begley. “A. O. Smith and their Vertex help us tell the green story by giving consumers an efficient and green option when choosing a water heater.”
