MREA works to expand the use of renewable energy throughout Montana. We do this through three key focus areas:
Education and Outreach.
Thousands of Montanans are taking advantage of the sun, the wind, or the earth to produce electricity, heat their homes or their water, and reduce their utility bills. MREA works with individuals, businesses, communities, and government entities to inform and educate Montanans on the benefits and uses of renewable energy technologies.
Policy and Advocacy.
MREA is a leading voice for renewable energy at key policy venues such as the Montana Legislature, the Montana Public Service Commission, and agency rule making procedures. MREA actively involves its membership in citizen advocacy aimed at protecting and expanding policies like net metering, the alternative energy loan program, and clean energy tax incentives.
Industry Safety and Training.
The renewable energy industry is experiencing rapid growth, and with that rapid changes in techniques and technology. MREA is committed to promoting safe practices among Montana’s renewable energy installers and keeping the industry on the forefront of new technology and regulatory developments.
Support from events like the Community UNite will help us reach more Montanans, educate more elected officials, grow our community, and ensure our energy future is a sustainable one.
