Discussions on energy issues have ramped up over the last few weeks of the session. Read insights from inside the hallways of the Capitol, where MREA's executive director has been working hard to defend Montana's renewable energy policies.
Until recently, off-grid electric vehicle charging was a daydream. Solar was too expensive, electric car technology was primitive and the mileage range of plug-in hybrids was too short for the big state of Montana. Things have changed.
The Montana Renewable Energy Association is a membership based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization founded in 2000. 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.
