Joe’s a graduate of the State University of New York (SUNY) College of Environmental Science and Forestry with a degree in Forest Engineering. Prior to joining ReVision, he lived and worked in Queens, New York, managing the remediation activities for gasoline and fuel oil spills in the five boroughs of New York City.
He figured the best way to prevent gasoline and fuel oil spills from occurring is to reduce the consumption of fossil fuels altogether. In 2010, he was excited to move away from the big city to join our solar team and to enjoy the good life up in Maine. He has since worked as a project manager for many residential and commercial PV installs before moving on to oversee the growth of ReVision’s air source heat pump division. He also works as a comprehensive solar design specialist offering the ideal solar energy solution to help homeowners and businesses save money on utility bills and reduce carbon pollution.
Joe loves playing music, hiking, skiing, and spending time with his fiance Sophia, daughter Jemma, baby James, and his dog, Frenchy.
Joe Maisonave's Energy System
Joe and his fiance, Sophia, purchased their first home in Portland and have done some major energy efficiency upgrades to nearly eliminate their fossil fuel consumption.
Their New England cape is now well insulated and heated with a wood burning stove, which replaced their oversized and inefficient oil boiler and has two air source heat pumps as back up. His flat plate solar hot water system provides all of his hot water needs for about half of the year with the electric backup to get through the rest. A 4 kilowatt PV array completes his energy needs as he builds credits all summer long to use through the winter months. His energy costs are now less than a third of what they were when he moved in.
