Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association (MAREA) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to informing and educating the public on renewable energy production, energy efficiency, and sustainable living through meetings, workshops, educational materials, and energy fairs.
Fellow blogger LVDem reports on Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association Meeting:
"MAREA is a remarkable organization because they really do see themselves as educators. One member remarked after the lecture that the goal was to demonstrate that renewable energy is something that the average joe can do. MAREA furthers this mission every fall when it hosts its annual Renewable Energy Fest, which is now entering its 3rd year. The first year, as predicted, was small. Last year’s raised a significant amount of cash for the organization. Year three promises to be a big time affair."
