About the North Texas Renewable Energy Group
The North Texas Renewable Energy Group ("NTREG") is the North Texas Chapter of the Texas Solar Energy Society. We are recognized by the Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Our Federal Tax identification number is 74-1962704.
 
NTREG was established in 2001 with the primary goal of educating North Texans about the power of renewable energy ("RE").
 
Whether you're experienced in renewable energy .. or so new to "RE" you don't know what to ask, The North Texas Renewable Energy Group is for you! Would you like to learn more about energy conservation, energy efficiency, solar electricity, solar hot water, and related topics? You're welcome to participate in our free Yahoo conversation group (sign-up link below) and attend our meetings!
 
NTREG members come quite literally from all walks of life. You need not be an engineer or the proverbial rocket scientist to be an active and productive participant with us.
 
We participate annually in a variety of events such as Mayfest, various Earth Days, Prairie Fest, The Renewable Energy Roundup, and others. We often staff a booth where we answer questions, provide information pamphlets, and demonstrate renewable energy equipment to the interested public.
 
We also frequently provide solar electric power equipment at various events to power their soundstages and other electrical needs. Our goal is to help educate people in solar energy and energy-related topics. What better way to teach about solar energy than by letting the public see it in action?
 
The North Texas Renewable Energy Group is a 501(c)(3) non-profit volunteer organization, and is the local chapter of the Texas Solar Energy Society (TXSES), which is the state chapter of the American Solar Energy Society (ASES). We encourage (but do not require) our members to take part in the State and National American Solar Energy Society memberships.
 
We meet on the second Saturday of each month from 10:00 am – 12:00 noon.
 
Visit our Events page for meeting details, location, and maps.
 
 
Our Mission
The Mission of North Texas Renewable Energy Group is to further the development of renewable energy, sciences and technologies with concern for the ecological, social and economic fabric of our community and state. NTREG promotes renewable energy through the exchange of ideas and information at meetings, discussion group and public and private events.
 
Additional areas of interest include electric cars and alternative transportation, biodiesel, as well as all aspects of energy conservation, both residential and commercial. If it pertains to energy, sustainability, or anything related .. we're probably discussing it.
 
Meetings are held on the 2nd Saturday of each month, from 10:00 AM to 12:00 noon at the REI Family Outdoor Recreation Store in Dallas, Texas (north side of I-635 between the Dallas North Tollway and Midway Road). Check our Events page for meeting topics and maps.
 
You are welcome to join our online discussion group. You need not be a NTREG member to participate in our discussion group, or even know anything about renewable energy. Please note: Participation in the NTREG discussion group does not convey membership in NTREG.
 
Membership in NTREG, as well as participation in our discussion group, are open to all. Beginners and newcomers are welcome!
