Labor Day weekend marks the unofficial end of summer in Maine. Since we'll be seeing less of the sun as the weeks move on, we thought this would be a great opportunity to share this video with you: episode seven of last year's SOLAR ROAD TOUR took ReVision Energy to midcoast Maine, where we met with homeowner Donald Born of Waldoboro and Hope General Store owner Andrew Stewart.

Down the sleepy Bremen Road you’ll find Donald Born, who worked with ReVision Energy to install a 2.76kw grid-tied photovoltaic system on his barn in August of 2010. Since then, he reports having nearly eliminated his electric bill, receiving only the $8.43 CMP minimum charge each month to keep his power service activated.

After Don’s, we drive a bit further north to the Hope General Store, where owner Andrew Stewart is trying to foster a spirit of community at the historic small town centerpiece. Part of that spirit is a commitment to sustainability, embodied by the addition of a 4.6kw solar electric system. Andrew reports on how solar has reduced his costs as a business owner and is sparking conversation in this eclectic mid-coast community.
