United States Renewable Energy Association, LLC., (USREA) is a renewable energy advocacy group, working to both educate and promote advanced technologies in the R.E. industry. We provide a blog and news service online, and encourage participation through knowledge posted by educational, corporate and enthusiast members alike. Over time, our data in a variety of advanced technologies will become a repository to be shared among our member enthusiasts and educators. Site news and perspective will keep people informed about industry events and milestones with a core focus of renewable energy in the United States. This aspect is an evolving attribute of the usrea.org site and will improve and expand with our resources and social media outlets.

Our association members include product manufacturers, suppliers, installers and academics’ in the renewable industry, as well as the customers that would use these resources. We actively solicit news and industry perspective from both those that provide R. E. products, and people and companies that use solar, wind, EV and related industry technologies. Our goal is to fully cover all contributing renewable systems. We are “One Arm Paper Hangers” but with your help we will continue to grow.

Further, we are building a network of affiliates that offer discounts and incentives on products and services to our association members. As our organization grows, more member customers will have direct access and benefits from our company affiliates.

As an energy advocacy group, we attempt to lead by example through the conservation of resources wherever possible. Our volunteers use a distributed workforce model, which allows us to utilize the best industry contributors while keeping our workforce flexible, minimizing overhead, commute time and wasted energy use.

Our goal is to be the very best online solution for buying, selling and researching new energy products and services. We want to provide the most positive experience possible for our consumers, dealers, and affiliated partners.

USREA is a self funded organization, supplemented through private and corporate memberships, donations, advertising and sales of R. E. educational and efficiency products, logo-wear, etc. We continue to expand our industry reach with the addition of CROWDRE.org, a renewable energy crowd-funding site, and upcoming RenewablePR.org, a renewable news and PR dedicated site.

If you are a Renewable Energy dealer, manufacturer or corporate sponsor interested in participating in the USREA program, please contact us for further information.
