Transportation and electricity usage are tied for the number one source of greenhouse gases in the US. Metropolitan Energy Center is the only nonprofit in the Kansas City area that is equipped to reverse that. We provide the resources, technical know-how, and education to businesses and governments seeking energy efficiency and alternative fuel options.
We seek to forge community partnerships around renewable energy development, building efficiency, environmentally-sound transportation options, and the promotion of green practices. Our specialized approach helps diverse organizations cut costs and improve environmental health in ways that make sense for them. We empower 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.
