STEVENS POINT, Wis (WSAU) The Midwest Renewable Energy Association has a new leader. He's an architect from Stevens Point.
Thomas Brown is one of the original founders of the M-R-E-A in 1990. That's the group that puts on the Energy Fair each year. Brown is also the founder of the Midwest Green Builders Association, and is a lecturer at U-W Stevens Point.
He says more people are asking about green building techniques when they start a construction project. He also says groups with similar goals -- like promoting green energy -- need to do a better job working together.
