A reminder that tonight (Thursday, June 10) we’ll be at two events, one at FW Horch in Brunswick, Maine and the other at the home of Frank John in Brooklin, Maine (near Blue Hill).

“Going Solar: Energy from the Sun” – A Discussion

FW Horch Solar EventFrom 7PM – 8:30PM John Capron will be speaking at F.W. Horch Sustainable Goods & Supplies, 56 Maine Street, Brunswick, ME 04011.

His talk will cover the basics of harnessing the sun for heat and power, including information on how solar power systems work, how solar energy available to harness changes over the course of the year, and available incentives for solar energy systems.

This talk is free and open to the public, part of the F.W. Horch series on sustainable living. Each monthly talk is held on the second Thursday of the month at the F.W. Horch Sustainable Goods & Supplies store.

Open House with Frank John in Brooklin, Maine

Brooklin, Maine - Solar PowerMeanwhile, from 2-5PM we will be having a solar open house at the home of Frank and Shari John at 185 Flye Point Road in Brooklin.

ReVision’s Hans Albee will be there to participate in a discussion of the 3.68 kilowatt grid-tied solar electric system we recently installed at the John residence. In addition to seeing a grid-tied solar energy system first hand, guests are encouraged to come learn about solar hot water systems for domestic hot water and supplementary space heat, current historically low solar panel prices, state and federal government incentives, lowering utility bills, reducing dependence on fossil fuels, and current solar technology in Maine.

We hope to see you this evening! Many other events are happening throughout June and July, see our events page for more information.
