Backyard BBQs and Online Courses

What do summer cookouts and online courses have in common? Not much, really – but you can do them both from the comfort of your backyard… or anyone else’s backyard, for that matter.

Self-paced and flexible, just like you. Grab a cold one (no need to drive anywhere), and take a course with us this summer!

Thank you for attending The 26th Annual Energy Fair!

The 26th Annual Energy Fair

Thank you for attending the nation's largest and longest-running renewable energy and sustainable living event! Folks flocked from California to Washington D.C. to discuss and learn about different aspects of renewable energy and sustainable living. A Ukrainian delegation attended, as did other international fairgoers from countries such as Australia, Canada, Germany, India, and Poland. Over 13,000 people enjoyed the sunshine while strolling between workshops, the artisan market, local food vendors, and family-friendly entertainment. The Energy Fair’s success is owed to the speakers who gave over 300 presentations, the exhibitors who represented renewables at 200 booths, the 1,000 MREA members who attended and new joining members, the artist community who kept the music going and specialty goods flowing, and all in attendance.

The MREA looks forward to hosting The 27th Annual Energy Fair, June 17-19, 2016. To learn more, visit The Energy Fair page.
