Join us at the home of John Newlin and Patty Carton for a tour of their solar energy systems on Thursday, May 23rd from 6pm – 7:30pm.
They have a solar hot water system which provides most of their household’s domestic hot water supply, as well as a 5.6kw solar electric array that provides most of their electricity. Both systems were commissioned in 2012 and have since dramatically reduced their home’s reliance on fossil energy.
During the tour we will have a short presentation by ReVision Energy, a tour of the system, and an opportunity to ask questions of the homeowners and ReVision staff. The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.

Join us at the home of the Buttaros for a tour of their 7.2kw grid tied solar electric array.
After utilizing a solar hot water system for ~30 years, the Buttaros had ReVision Energy decommission the old collectors and replace them with modern, high-performing solar electric modules chosen for a sleek aesthetic that blends into the roof surface. The system meets close to 100% of the energy needs of this home.
During the tour we will have a short presentation by ReVision Energy, a tour of the system, and an opportunity to ask the Buttaros questions about their home. The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.

Al’s Cold Climate Home features 16 Suniva American-made solar electric panels added this year to compliment his super-insulated home. He’s had solar hot water working for several years eliminating his need to use oil in the summertime to heat his water, now his home is close to net zero thanks to clean solar electric generation.
During the tour we will have a short presentation by ReVision Energy, a tour of the system, and an opportunity to ask Al questions about his home. The event is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be provided.

Join ReVision Energy and the Maine Chapter of the US Green Building council for a tour of the 363 House, the subject of the June 2013 Green Eggs presentation.
This two-story house is being designed for a young couple, Jessica and Todd, and intends to demonstrate how a small, sustainable residence built with a moderate budget can fit into an older neighborhood in support of a more sustainable lifestyle. Occupying a small infill lot near the campus of the University of Southern Maine, this building will consist of simple rectilinear volumes with a series of outdoor rooms – entry court, rear patio, and roof-top terrace/green roof. This small, tight, well-insulated house will be constructed of durable/low-maintenance materials on an urban infill lot and will optimize use of on-site renewable energy to provide a near net-zero living solution for its owners/occupants.
Join experts in Maine’s renewable energy and efficiency space including reVision Heat, Island Carpentry, Evergreen Geothermal, Complete Home Evaluation Services, and ReVision Energy for a potluck dinner and discussion about energy issues conducted one-on-one between attendees and the various experts available.
Come at 6pm for a casual potluck dinner, and then circulate from 6:30-8:30 for introductions and Q&A with a panel of energy efficiency professionals.
