Sponsorship and advertising help make The Energy Fair the largest and longest running event of its kind in the nation. Because of this support, we’re able to keep admission rates low and attract over 13,000 sustainability-minded people.
“The MREA Energy Fair is the largest gathering of knowledge and access to professional educators anywhere in the Midwest. To have so many training options to choose from and the ability to attain NABCEP credits at an event this affordable is almost unheard of in the solar industry today.”
— Roger Garton, Rural Renewable Energy Alliance
