MREA to partner in The Montana Solar Community Project

The Montana Solar Community Project is a partnership between the Montana Energy Office at the Department of Environmental Quality and the U.S. Department of Energy’s SunShot Initiative to expand community-scale solar developments throughout Montana. As part of the project, the Energy Office will be hosting community meetings, facilitated by MREA, across the state to both inform and listen to communities about the potential for community-scale solar in Montana.

October 20-22: AERO Expo and Annual Meeting (Butte)
This year’s Expo, “Ready, Set, Lead” takes us to historic venues across Uptown Butte, Montana, to learn from one another, and the place itself, in the Copper City. Keynote speakers include Gabe Brown on “Holistic Land Management” and John Farrell on “Democratizing the Electric System,” plus special guests, workshops, panels, along with a live and silent auction, music by local Butte bluegrass band Seth Ontario and the Mounted Police, and all the resources, good times, great folks, and fun you expect from an AERO meeting! Find out more on the AERO website.
