Does your non-profit organization have an innovative community sustainability project? Could the project benefit from solar? The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) is making it possible for one non-profit to win a fully installed 2kW solar electric system through their Seeing RED in Communities Contest. Seeing RED (Renewable Energy Development) is an effort by the MREA to engage leaders and visionaries in the renewable energy market to share their ideas.
As part the website’s launch, MREA is announcing their Seeing RED in Communities Contest. This national contest is open to non-profits that have innovative community development projects that promote renewable energy and/or sustainability. Support from MREA sponsors, Helios Solar Works, Ingeteam, Werner Electric Supply, and A-A Exteriors (owner was initial winner of the solar system but has since donated back to MREA) made this contest possible.
Four to five finalists will be selected to give a presentation as part of the Sunday keynote address at the 24th Annual Energy Fair in Custer, Wisconsin, June 21st-23rd. A live vote from the audience will decide the winner. For the contest overview and application go to www.seeingred.org. Applications must be submitted by 5:00 p.m. Central Time on Monday, April 22nd.
Seeing RED began at the 23rd Annual Energy Fair. Presentations were given exploring the existing and upcoming innovations and advancements in renewable energy technology, financing, policy, design, education, politics, and partnership. In order to advance discussions based on these presentations MREA has developed and now launched SeeingRED.org. Videos, resources, and opportunities to get involved will be regularly posted to educate and inspire further engagement.
