We’re bringing back our Solar Champion Gift Guide this year! You can still consult the full list of solar-powered gifts, but we’ve also packaged some of them up for that certain type of person in your life. Sure, there’s a ton of ~stuff~ out there to buy, but how much cooler is it to give your loved ones a bundle from organizations that really care about our environment and local community??
These organizations are all based in northern New England and are all using clean solar energy installed by ReVision Energy. Many of them are also B Corps, Employee/Family-owned, or sustainably-minded in other ways. We love supporting these groups and hope you will too!
For that person in your life who just can’t get enough of hiking, camping, running, biking, and smelling that fresh New England air.
