The impacts of climate change are becoming increasingly visible in our state and across the nation, and these impacts are directly tied to the increasing carbon emissions in our atmosphere. We need to reduce carbon emissions as quickly as possible to avoid the dangers of sea level rise, intense storms, and warming oceans. Join ReVision Energy for a presentation on how you can rapidly decrease your own carbon emissions by living in an all-electric house that's powered by solar. The cost of solar technology has dropped 75% in the past ten years, making a solar-electric house more accessible than ever. Using solar to power your heat, hot water, and charge an all-electric car will save you money and bring your carbon footprint close to zero - a crucial step in halting climate change. Please join ReVision Energy for a discussion on climate change and the all-electric household model.
Thomas Tutor, Solar Design Manager, grew up on Islesboro, a small island in Penobscot Bay with a year-round population of about 600 people. He understood self-sufficiency as simply part of island life. Thomas earned his BS in Economics from the University of Mary Washington, where he was the captain of the soccer team, and moved to Portland in 2013 to become involved with renewable energy. He joined ReVision Energy as a solar and heat pump design specialist and loves getting to climb around on roofs and communicate the many benefits of solar electricity to anyone who will listen. When not helping Mainers get off of fossil fuels, Thomas makes Resurgam fermented hot sauce and explores the outdoors as often as he can.
