Rob Ellis, Solar Energy System Design SpecialistRob Ellis grew up in Lewiston, Maine and graduated from the University of Southern Maine in 2009 with a degree in Political Science. After college, Rob worked as an Americorp VISTA in Portland, Maine helping low income homeowners winterize their homes. He was part of a statewide volunteer effort to educate and reinforce energy conservation steps that addressed basic air sealing and insulation, helping Mainers lower energy bills and improve comfort. Rob’s involvement in weatherization efforts quickly progressed to energy auditing, and he attained a Building Performance Institute (BPI) certification. Rob is also an Efficiency Maine certified energy advisor.

Rob joined the ReVision team in 2013 to help homeowners in the Midcoast and Central Maine region understand the potential of solar energy and the options available for their homes. We’re thrilled to have Rob join our crew of solar professionals leading the growth of solar energy in the region.

In 2011, Rob successfully thru-hiked the entire Appalachian Trail starting in Georgia and walking home to Maine. The hike was a great experience filled with physical hardship, personal achievement and dozens of new friends. In addition to hiking, camping, biking, and skiing, he is a big fan of public and community media and addict to NPR’s “Planet Money.” He looks forward to purchasing his own home soon so he can put solar on it!
