This electric rate case may bring an end to net metering, rooftop solar, and the solar industry in Montana. Find out more about the proposal.
MREA works with individuals, businesses, communities, and government entities to inform and educate Montanans on the benefits of renewable energy. Join us at an upcoming meet & greet, presentation, movie screening, and more!
Thank you, Bozeman, for another successful Fair. Enjoy some of the photos from the Fair!
Interconnection procedures are the technical requirements and documents that are used when a generating system (like solar or wind) wants to connect to the grid. It includes everything from detailing the safety and technical standards required for the equipment, to the application forms you need to fill out and file with the utility. These are important issues, directly affecting how installers may design systems and how they plan their workflow with their customers.
The workshops cover everything from solar PV basics to off-grid living, from energy storage to electric vehicles, and from policy to financing – we have something for everyone! New in 2019: after the Fair we have set up self-guided tours of solar arrays on a nearby net-zero home and local business.

We are businesses, individuals, families, and advocates dedicated to expanding Montana’s use of renewable energy in order to conserve natural resources, create jobs, and increase the independence and resilience of our communities. Join us!
Our mission is to expand the use of renewable energy in Montana, to affect public policy in favor of renewable energy, and to educate and inform the residents of Montana of the benefits and uses of renewable energy. Our focus is on-site and community-scale renewable energy such as solar electricity, solar hot water, and small wind generation.
