Monroe County Energy Challenge

Mailing List 2

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.

To learn more about the competition that started it all, visit the Georgetown University Energy Prize.   Want more info on the local effort? Email mocoenergychallenge@gmail.com or call 812.349.3837.

  1. I am circulating your announcements to all 200+ residents at the Meadowood Retirement Community on Bloomingon’s north side.

    1. Thank you Michael! Support like yours is what we will need to have the biggest impact! Check back for more resources as we get this website up and running.

    1. Hi Cathy! The only energy (electricity and natural gas) use that will be included from the Showers Building are City and County accounts. So private businesses in the building will not be taken into account for competition. …However, we’d be extra happy if our efforts rubbed off on our neighbors in the building, and everyone reduced their energy use! 🙂
