Welcome to MAREA

At the Mid-Atlantic Renewable Energy Association, our goal is to help individuals and families get good answers to big questions about what each of us can do, really do, to improve prospects of a sustainable future. MAREA is an educational nonprofit and our sole motive is to help people do good things.  Welcome!

In keeping with the CDC guidance to avoid events of 50 people or more until early May, MAREA’s March and April meetings are cancelled.

There will be no TEK Park and no Zoom event on Tuesday, March 31 or Tuesday, April 28.

At this point, we are still planning to hold the May 14 book discussion ( details). The selection is “Supply Shock” by Brian Czech,  available in paperback and audiobook. Brian was our scheduled speaker for March. We plan to reschedule him to speak with us in the future.

We invite you to freshly examine our entrenched myths and explore a better way in our on-going journey to discover a more sustainable future.  Details…
