Josh Baston grew up in Midcoast Maine and joined Revision Energy in the summer of 2008. He is now a project manager focusing on design and installation of photovoltaic systems. He’s also the primary innovator behind our solar data monitoring options.
Josh graduated from Northeastern University with a degree in geology, and spent several years working in the environmental science field before deciding that he was able to make a far greater impact on the environment through renewable energy.
Josh’s interests outside of work include sustainable farming (he has spent a year farming in the US and New Zealand through the WWOOFer program) and many outdoor activities – most notably backpacking and rock climbing. Josh has a great affinity for wood heating, which is one of New England’s best resources along with ample solar!
Josh Baston's Energy System
Josh bought a duplex on Portland’s Munjoy Hill in 2010 and now has a 3 kilowatt Sunpower solar electric system scavenged up from stranded inventory in the warehouse. With the extra energy produced by his system, he plans to use the energy credits to offset the energy costs for his family’s camp in Belgrade. He also has 3 Wagner solar hot water plates that cover most of the hot water needs for both units of his house.
He utilizes his green space to keep his kitchen stocked with fresh vegetables from his garden, but also fixes up vintage Swedish cars.
