ReVision Heat @ 2015 Gorham Home Energy Fair – 2/28

Join ReVision Heat at the Gorham Home Energy Fair!

Gorham Home Energy Fair: Saturday, February 28th from 10 am – 3 pm at the Great Falls Elementary School, 73 Justice Way, Gorham. Snow date of March 7.

Do you have questions?  We’ve got answers!  Come meet our Energy Adviser Stefan Apse at the Gorham Home Energy Fair.  He’ll be on hand to answer your home heating questions and help you to understand where you can create additional efficiencies and reduce your carbon footprint.  If you’re looking for cooling this summer, we do that too!  Heat Pumps handle cooling needs for most homes in Maine, with incredible efficiency.  Just let us know what you need.  Plus, with over 20 exhibitors ranging from composting to solar, there’s a lot of great opportunities to learn.

Stop by our booth to say hello and to grab a delicious donut from The Holy Donut, whose used fryer oil gets turned into biodiesel by our friends at Maine Standard Biofuels!

We hope to see you there!  For more information, visit:  http://www.portlandgreenfest.org/energy-fairs/

Through our partnership with Maine Standard Biofuels, we’re offering a great new way to get the most out of converting to biofuel.
