ReVision Energy of Brentwood, New Hampshire is Energize 360’s clean energy solutions vendor for Energize 360. Fully transitioning a home/business to clean energy requires two components: optimizing performance through energy upgrades, then installing high-efficiency Energy Equipment to provide for the remaining needs, phasing out the use of fossil fuels.
ReVision Energy is best known as a solar installer (actually, consistently rated one of the top solar installers in the country) but ReVision offers a range of energy solutions beyond solar as well!
Grid-tied solar electricity (or photovoltaic, “PV”) allows you to generate your own electricity whenever the sun is out. You can either use the power as it’s created, or export it to the grid and earn credits. When the rate of electricity goes up, your solar array increases in value proportionally.

Solar-Powered Water Heating
Did you know you can get 100% of your household hot water from sunshine during summer?
If yours is one of the 750,000+ homes in Maine, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts that heats domestic hot water (DHW) with an oil-fired boiler, it’s hard to ignore the roooooooar in your basement as the boiler fires up to make hot water while sunshine pours down onto your roof.
This is a terribly inefficient (and therefore environmentally harmful) way to make hot water but the good news is that there are a number of cost-effective ways to correct the problem.
You can save more than 300 gallons of oil per year for an average family of four by switching to solar hot water, provided by either true solar hot water, a heat pump water heater, a high-efficiency electric tank, or on-demand electric water heater.

Say “Goodbye” to oil, propane, or natural gas for heat. Lock in a cost for heating that’s less than $1/gallon oil equivalent, and dramatically reduce your home’s carbon pollution thanks to modern ductless, mini-split air source heat pumps (ASHPs).
Modern heat pumps are able to heat and cool 2-3x more efficiently than older electric technologies like baseboard and air conditioners, making them dramatically less expensive to operate than nearly every other form of heat, and the best air conditioner you can buy.

Battery Backup Storage (e.g. “Off the grid” systems or “Grid tied with battery backup”)
Grid-tied solar electric systems are a great way to save money using free power from the sun. However, most grid-tied solar arrays are designed to shut down when they lose grid connection, meaning, even if it is sunny, if the grid is out of power, you are too (They do this as part of UL-listing, because a live grid-tied inverter might accidentally backfeed and harm line workers).
The next generation of battery storage has arrived, giving solar customers clean, reliable, and efficient backup power to reduce their dependence on the power grid!

Electric Vehicle Charging
The move to a 100% renewable powered society must include aggressive action to transition away from fossil fuels for transportation. To that end, ReVision Energy has been an early and eager proponent of electric vehicles… Including building the first electric car charger in Maine!
This video offers a quick driving tour of the Chevy Volt and how solar + electric vehicle charging works:
