The High Country Home Energy Contest has come to a close, but the winners are already seeing tangible results from the upgrades they won. We received a playful painting made by the young children of contest runners-up Sean Dunlap and Lynnea McElreath, and will soon be releasing a video detailing the impact of the contest. Visit appvoices.org/energycontest to explore the winners’ stories and pictures of the retrofitting process!
Our team is also gathering signatures of support for a strong energy efficiency loan program from Blue Ridge Electric. We are in discussions with the North Carolina electric membership cooperative about how to make energy efficiency more accessible to its members, including low-income residents, and want the cooperative leadership to know that its members support a financing model that works for all.
