switchyellowlogoJoin ReVision Energy and Maine’s Chapter of the US Green Building Council at Portland Public Library for ‘Switch’ on March 13th at 5:30. After the film, there will be a question and answer session hosted by featured guest, Todd J. Griset.

Switch, a 2009 documentary produced by Harry Lynch and geologist Dr. Scott Tinker, sets out to tell a story on energy transition to promote efficiency and conservation. It is based on scientifically sound investigation and the practical realities of the world as they discovered them. This film is not meant to advocate for one technology over the other, rather the filmmakers travel the world to discover how a switch might actually happen, focusing on the many economic and environmental benefits of efficiency.
