Jared PalmerFor Jared, off grid is a way of life! After growing up in an off grid log cabin in Thorndike, Maine (with solar installed by ReVision Energy’s predecessor, The Green Store), he now lives in another off grid log cabin he helped build in his teens. His home today is heated by wood, powered entirely by PV and features a recently installed solar hot water system.

Along the way he’s earned a BA in English from the University of Maine, Orono, worked in web based graphic design and was a heavy diesel mechanic for three years.

Since joining ReVision in 2010, Jared has become a key part of our Liberty branch’s solar installation team. When not installing solar panels, he likes to hike, camp, ski, whitewater kayak, restore antique vehicles and generally spend his time on various in home improvement projects.
