We envision a Missoula area that is powered by renewable energy and where community members are engaged with and have control over affordable energy systems. Our community will significantly reduce our reliance on carbon-based fuels and increase the percentage of renewable energy in Missoula's energy budget. By 2050, we will generate enough energy through renewable sources to supply the entire Missoula community's electrical energy needs.
Where we're heading:
from our Community Climate Smart Action Plan
Accelerate Renewable Energy Development in Missoula
Advocate for Needed Policy
Engage in Education and Outreach
Our Work, in a Nutshell:

Sun Brewed: Bitter Root Brewing praised for use of solar power system
Bitter Root Brewing has two solar arrays on its roof that have saved $2,000 in energy costs since June. USDA Rural Development and U.S. Sen. Jon Tester, D-Mont., recently recognized them for their efforts.
Wondering how other communities are expanding their use of renewable energy?
