National and state energy policies too often focus on solutions that benefit U.S. urban centers. 

The Rural Energy Network (“REN”) is a coalition of community leaders focused on energy policies that advance local economies by maximizing energy development in our rural communities.    

REN supports “All of the Above” energy policies that enable rural communities to continue to capitalize on traditional energy resources while also advancing market competitive new energy solutions in rural areas across the Western United States. 

REN is an initiative of The Western Way, a non-profit organization focused on delivering conservative free-market solutions to energy and environmental challenges facing the Western U.S.
