Sep 30, 2014 01:23PM
The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA), an educational nonprofit that promotes renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable living, has been selected as one of nine regional teams to participate in the federally initiated and funded SunShot Initiative, intended to help homeowners, businesses and municipalities navigate through laws and regulations related to rooftop solar systems in order to double renewable electricity generation by 2020.
The U.S. Department of Energy is leading SunShot to drive research, manufacturing and market solutions that will make solar energy resources in the United States more affordable and accessible. MREA is working with partners in five Midwest states as part of the Midwest Grow Solar Partnership and recently hosted the Solar Powering Michigan conference to engage utilities, policy makers, industry professionals and others in defining opportunities, accessing resources and advancing projects in the solar market.
