The Maine Statewide Wood Energy Assistance Team provides limited technical assistance for those Maine commercial or institutional building owners or managers interested in switching to modern wood heat at their facility.  If you are interested in engineering technical assistance to switch your building to wood heat, please do the following:

ME SWEAT will be working with engineering expertise being provided by the USDA Forest Service to get a professional on-site at your facility to look at the heating system and develop an analysis of switching to wood heating (wood chips or wood pellets) using a modern wood heating appliance – a boiler or furnace.

Have a question? contact one of the Team managers now – Charlie Levesque at

Disclaimer: Completing an application to ME SWEAT does not guarantee that technical assistance will be made available to the applicant.
