A reptile museum could be coming to Louisa County after an economic development summit.

Rappahannock Electric Cooperative recently helped to sponsor the Quad County Business Summit. The event brings together businesses from the counties of Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange and others from Central Virginia for a half-day of networking opportunities.

Ann Lewis, REC Director of Member Services and Community Relations in Bowling Green; Oliver Price, Director of Member Services and Community Relations in Culpeper; and Rich Mialki, Energy Management Advisor II, talked to attendees about energy efficiency.

Felicia Ainsa, Director of Economic Development, participated as a judge for the Quad-Tank where entrepreneurs pitch their business ideas for a chance to win a grand prize. This year’s winner was My Three Chambered Heart, a reptile natural history museum coming to Louisa in early 2022.
