The Midwest Renewable Energy Association (MREA) is a non-profit 501(C)3 tax exempt organization founded in 1990. The MREA’s mission is to promote renewable energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable living through education and demonstration.
Keeping in line with the MREA’s mission to promote renewable energy, energy efficiency, and sustainable living through education and demonstration, the MREA Certified Site Assessor Program trains and certifies individuals to provide site-specific renewable energy assessment and consumer education. The MREA trains and certifies renewable energy site assessors in the following technologies: Small Wind, Residential PV, Non Residential PV Residential Solar Hot Water and Non Residential Solar Hot Water.
For more information about MREA events, membership opportunities, ReNews newsletter, or workshops, please visit the MREA website.
The MREA Site Assessor Program began in 2001 and has flourished in Wisconsin thanks to site assessment incentives offered through the Focus on Energy Renewable Energy Program. The MREA has experienced an increased interest and demand for the certification as an entry level credential into a renewable energy career from around the country. In 2008, Wisconsin's Renewable Energy Site Assessment Program was awarded an Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC) Innovation Award. In 2009, the MREA launched an application process in order to recognize other training programs that meet the training component of the MREA certification requirements.
