Buncombe County – City of Asheville
Buncombe County and the City of Asheville are overhauling their energy usage by retrofitting 46 of their public institutions’ buildings with solar. Fourty-six separate solar installations on various buildings will be conducted by the EnergyLink team, totaling about 6.8 MW. Project details include:
- Energy independence: The county’s choice to install solar will be a huge step closer towards energy independence and allow for on-site power generation of clean, renewable energy.
- Community impact: The high amount of solar installed in this project will help all 46 locations in Buncombe County reduce the stress they would normally have placed on the local electric grid.
- Job growth: Given the huge scope of this job over the next two years, the EnergyLink team will have to expand our construction team significantly.
Increased solar visibility: With so many solar installations being conducted, this project offers the opportunity to make solar more visible to the public eye. Buncombe County constituents will see their county working hard to reduce its carbon footprint and ensure a future cleaner environment.
