Blue Ridge Electric Explores On-Bill Financing
Our outreach efforts in the High Country region of northwestern North Carolina have gained a lot of momentum for our campaign this spring! At Blue Ridge Electric’s annual meeting last week, CEO Doug Johnson said they are looking into on-bill financing. We now have 774 signatures of support from the community asking the coop for greater accessibility to energy efficiency. Ten local service agencies and eight businesses have also signed on.

Winning With Energy Efficiency
This past winter we reached out to North Carolina's northwestern region to find people who struggle with paying their energy bills, and received over 70 applications and inquiries for our High Country Home Energy Makeover contest.
Watch our new video that tells the stories of the contest winners and illustrates the true need for energy efficiency programs in Appalachia.
