Transportation and electricity generation are the top sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the US. Metropolitan Energy Center is the only non-profit in the Heartland working to reduce those trends. MEC provides the resources, technical know-how, and education for businesses, governments, and the public who are seeking information on energy efficiency or alternative fuel options.
We forge community partnerships around renewable energy development, building efficiency, clean transportation options, and sustainability practices. Our specialized approach helps diverse organizations cut costs and improve environmental health in the ways that make sense for them. We empower local communities to act against climate change and harmful pollutants, as we help cities and businesses go green vehicle by vehicle and building by building. MEC strives to preserve the livability of our communities for generations to come.
