MEIC has selected Tom Schneider, a former member of the Montana Public Service Commission and long time energy efficiency and renewable energy advocate as the 2018 recipient of the organization’s highest award – the Conservationist of the Year.

A Philipsburg native, Tom has a degree in petroleum engineering from Montana Tech. He has provided invaluable expert assistance on energy issues to help keep bills down for low-income households, and has advocated for the clean-up of Montana’s energy system through a transition to cleaner energy. He has most recently been directly involved in the creation of the Montana Renewables Development Action Plan. The document’s title may be boring, but it is a critical effort that should help facilitate the development of Montana’s renewable energy resources. Schneider may be best known, however, for his passion for fly fishing on Rock Creek.
