The MREC has two main mechanisms to share information and educational material with its members and the general public: Courses and Conferences that take place yearly:
Stray Voltage Investigator Courses
Three classes in Stray Voltage Investigation for dairy producers and agricultural professionals are typically held each year. Stray Voltage Investigator’s Classes were developed by the University of Wisconsin, Public Service Commission of Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection.
Every year in February, the MREC holds its Annual Conference where researchers, energy service professionals, farm stakeholders, and other actors present on different topics related to rural energy.
