 Sierra Club & ReVision Partnership!

To support our important environmental advocacy and education work, ReVision Energy will make a donation for each solar system (depending on the size of the system) purchased by a Sierra Club supporter.

To get started, click HERE to schedule a free appointment with ReVision for an estimate for a photovoltaic and/or hot water solar system for your home or business.

Thanks for doing your part for cleaner energy in Maine and helping to support the Sierra Club by going solar!

What are the Maine Woods?

The Maine Woods comprise 10 million acres of forestland that contain thousands of miles of clear-running rivers and streams, provide habitat for endangered and sensitive wildlife, and include some of New England’s last old growth forests.

 

 

 

 

The Sierra Club Maine Woods Campaign

The Sierra Club has made the protection of the Maine Woods, the largest expanse of contiguous northern forest east of the Mississippi River, one of its highest national conservation priorities.  The Sierra Club seeks to protect Maine's wilderness heritage through efforts to link existing public lands and unprotected areas, create new opportunities for wilderness recreation, and allow forests to return to a mature and natural state.

 

 

Why Maine needs a Maine Woods Campaign

Maine is a state with a rich natural and cultural heritage based on wilderness and a connection to the environment.  Millions of acres of forestland have been changing ownership over the past decade resulting in a striking conversion of timber based industry to real estate investment.  The recent massive development proposal of Plum Creek is the first of many development proposals for the Maine Woods and it is vital that we work towards a long term vision for permanent protection of Maine's forests.
