March 6th: 3Fish Gallery Exhibition

Mar 6, 2015 @ 5:00pm   Events, Member Events, News & Events

On March 6th, 2008 Addison Woolley opened its doors for the first time on Market Street in Portland’s Old Port.  This coming FirstFriday, March 6th, 2015 marks our 7th anniversary to the day!  Please  join us on that happy day for a reception at 3fish Gallery from 5 – 8 p.m.  The exhibit will honor the optimism that this pivotal month brings as we anticipate and welcome the joys of spring.  Photographs and prints take the viewer from depth of winter rumination to the rushing and rising waters of the thaw; delicate blossoms and a nod to where a young man’s fancy may turn in the spring.  A series of balletic images of an electrical substation might turn concerns of reliability into admiration for its symmetry and grace.  Even a day at the beach may not be too far from the imagination…


There is much to celebrate!  We hope to see many of you on our anniversary and throughout the month of March.  Please visit our website for preview images of the show.


March 4th: Heat Local – Portland!

Mar 4, 2015 @ 5:30pm   Events, Member Events, News & Events

Heat Local – Portland!

When: Wednesday, March 4th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm

Where: Interphase Energy, 145 Presumpscot Street, Portland ME 04103

Join Greater Portland’s sustainable heating community to learn about the positive impact renewable, Maine-produced wood pellet heating has on our climate, our local economy and your home energy costs.

ReVision Heat will be hosting March’s Heat Local, our sustainable home heating Q&A mixer, at Interphase Energy in Portland, distributors of the Kedel wood pellet boiler. This month we’ll be joined by Portland homeowner Michael Bomser, who will share his experiences heating his home with wood pellets and host a Q&A with ReVision Heat Co-Founder and newly-appointed Chairman of the Maine Solid Fuels Board Lee Landry. We’ll also tour the Kedel wood pellet boiler that heats Interphase’s facility.

Maine is 90% forested – more than any other US state! When you heat with sustainably-produced Maine wood pellets, you help to keep your heating dollars local, rather than sending them out of state or out of the country for oil, gas or propane. Heating with wood pellets decreases your home’s carbon emissions by 90% and offers a 25% or higher reduction in your bills despite the current low cost of heating oil.

Enjoy snacks from Local Sprouts Cafe and local beer and wine while learning about greater Portland’s rapidly-growing sustainable heating community.    This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in renewable biomass heat to learn about pellet production and supply, the technology driving wood pellet boilers and the energy savings and carbon impact of biomass heat.

Let us know you’re coming! RSVP to
