Welcome to BuildGreenMaine

windmillBuild Green Maine is dedicated to facilitating the rapid transformation of Maine's built environment.

Acknowledging the enormity of the task confronting people everywhere to develop ecological and financial resilience in the face of climate change and peak oil, Build Green Maine has developed the resources to educate and guide homeowners, to train desperately-needed building professionals, to comprehensively evaluate buildings and manage energy retrofit jobs, and to develop and administer energy conservation programs.

We are out to change your mindset from dependence to empowerment, in your home and in your community.

Our mission is to:

  • Educate
    Through our community events, we strive for cogent public outreach. We educate about the benefits and methodologies of green building, helping people to realize that green building really is better building. Also, our members constantly educate each other by collaborating on projects and sharing ideas and expertise.
  • Generate
    Our goal is to generate more green construction and living in Maine! By increasing public awareness and by connecting customers and clients with resources and industry contacts, we hope to increase the number of green buildings produced in our region every year.
  • Facilitate
    By providing an outlet for professionals to meet, network, and join forces we hope to solidify a rapidly growing industry with deep roots in Maine.
