Heliotropic Technologies won the contract to install the LED lighting program through Efficiency Maine; Heliotropic Technologies also bid directly into the GridSolar project and installed seven solar electric generation projects. This award is given to an individual, organization or business entity that has championed steps towards creating a sustainable/resilient local community through positive solutions that may include energy efficiency, renewable energy, local foods development and innovative modes of transportation.
