Thank you for joining us!

MREA is excited to have once again partnered with the Sleeping Giant Citizens Council & Helena Vigilante Runners to host the 2021 Helena Sun Run and Clean Energy Expo. The event took place on Saturday, October 2nd, 2021 at Central School (402 N. Warren Street). The Expo included presentations on how to pair your renewable energy system with EVs and storage, plus opportunities to engage with renewable energy businesses, advocates, and enthusiasts. The Expo happened concurrently with the Helena Sun Run, a charitable walk/run event that raised funds for solar arrays on Helena's public schools. Join us again next year as we continue building community momentum toward a clean energy future!
