MREA Who We Are

The Montana Renewable Energy Association (MREA) was established in November 2000 as a nonprofit corporation to support the development of renewable energy in Montana. Specific activities of MREA include expanding the use of renewable energy technologies like solar, wind, small hydro, and geothermal in Montana; affecting public policy in favor of renewable energy; and educating and informing residents of Montana about the benefits and uses of renewable energy.  

Benefits to members of the MREA:

  • Participating with a dedicated group to promote and expand the renewable energy marketplace in Montana.
  • Having a new, focused voice affecting public opinion and policy toward the expanded use of renewable energy, uncomplicated by group agendas other than renewable energy.
  • Educating  Montanans about the benefits of renewable energy, including economic development, conservation of natural resources, and improving the environment.

Companies dealing in renewable energy technologies, or ones that wish to encourage environmentally benign technologies, or individuals who would like to take part in encouraging the development of renewable energy in Montana are encouraged to join us in this important effort.
