The Monroe County Energy Challenge (MCEC) is a community-wide effort to reduce energy use in order to minimize environmental impact, improve our quality of life, and save money too!
We conduct free home energy assessments, provide free attic insulation to low-income families, teach youth about the importance of renewable energy and educate the public about energy conservation.
There are so many ways to join this huge community effort, from making your own home more energy efficient, to sharing info about the Challenge with your neighbors, to setting up a Challenge Team in your workplace, faith community or neighborhood. Everyone can contribute to the effort in some way.
The Monroe County Energy Challenge (MCEC) is a joint effort of the City of Bloomington, the Towns of Ellettsville and Stinesville, Monroe County Government, the Monroe County School Corporation, the Richland Bean-Blossom School Corporation, the Indiana University Office of Sustainability, Ivy Tech, the South Central Community Action Program, Vectren Energy, South Central Indiana REMC, and many others.
