Giving Back to the Community

A long time ago, the Royal River was an important part of life here in our neck of the woods, powering mills and allowing a community to grow and flourish. Nowadays, we see what the river helped to create. We believe that ordinary people can come together to make a big difference, too, in helping to create a community that continues that growth.

Our “Ripple to River” program is highlighting Make-A-WishⓇ Maine this month, an important organization in our community that could use your help.

Even a small, individual act of kindness can “ripple out” into something significant for kids that are facing challenges nobody ever wants to face. One person’s donation, no matter how small, can combine with others to bring comfort and positive change to a family facing unimaginable challenges after their child has been diagnosed with a critical illness.

Ripple to River will highlight one Maine-based non-profit each month that focuses on supporting these children.

Heat Pump Water Heaters Study

Check out this news article about a heat pump water heater study in the Pacific Northwest aimed at decarbonization and creating efficient energy systems. “This approach makes HPWHs significantly more energy efficient than traditional units. Considering that water heating accounts for about one-seventh of the electricity use in a home, improved efficiency translates to significant energy and cost savings, as well as potential environmental benefits.”
