THE REPUBLICAN JOURNAL - Unity College alums work with Unity Barn Raisers on Solarize Mid Maine
When Benjamin Holt graduated from Unity College in 2014 with a degree in sustainable energy management, he sought to stay in the area and put his degree to work. The Skowhegan native was hired immediately by a local solar installation firm, Insource Renewables of Pittsfield.
A resident of Unity, Holt has installed solar electric, solar heating, and mini-split heat pumps across a wide swath of Maine. This summer, he will have the opportunity to use his skills and degree to serve the region around his alma mater through Solarize Mid Maine.
