There’s no doubt that a fuel bill like this is overwhelming: 750 gallons of oil, plus 6 cords of wood, plus all the electricity it took to power an inefficient old water heater. The homeowners knew they needed to do something to control costs and make their home more affordable to live in long-term – but like many households, they didn’t know where to start.

For this Rockport family, energy efficiency and a solar electricity project was the answer. Hear the story from Maine’s two leading energy companies, Revision Energy and Evergreen Home Performance, at the Hutchinson Center in Belfast on Tuesday, October 16 at 7 pm. The talk is free and open to the public, and light refreshments will be served.

Evergreen and ReVision are teaming up to show homeowners in Mid-Coast Maine how they can improve their home’s comfort and energy independence. Topics covered include how to properly assess your house for opportunities, case studies of projects that reduce energy bills by 20-50%, and an overview of federal and state rebate and financing programs.

Learn how to get started and how affordable these projects can be at www.RevisionEnergy.com or www.EvergreenYourHome.com, or register for the information session by calling Kathleen Meil at 594-2244.
