They say there’s strength in numbers.

Nowhere is that more true than in the area of energy policy. For that reason DECA is free to join at the forum level. Registering for DECA membership gives you an opportunity to participate in some unique programs designed to make the world a better place and we are constantly looking for good deals for our members from distributed generation providers across the United States. Also, our forums provide an opportunity to share your experiences and to ask experts and people just like you what their experiences have been installing solar or wind, charging their electric vehicles, and dealing with their utilities and local government. Would you like to do more to be a part of the community? DECA also offers a Premium Membership option for folks who want to help cover the expenses of running the organization – we’d sure appreciate it if you did, and we’re constantly looking for special deals for our premium members to show our appreciation. Thanks for the help!
