REI Website

The Appalachian State Renewable Energy Initiative (REI) has a new website going up. They are one of the greatest groups doing renewable energy work in western North Carolina.

This is Mary filling the first ASU truck with biodiesel! And the “AppalCart” – Boone’s public transportation – will now be powered by biodiesel as well thanks to the hard-working folks at REI who purchased a 10,000 gallon tank.

They just had an incredible “Solar Christmas Tree Lighting” last night in downtown Boone at the Jones House Community Center. I wish I had a picture to show yall, because its really a beautiful event. It is also best in person 🙂

Anyway, the REI website isn’t completely finished, but I couldn’t pass up the oppurtunity to give them a shout-out.
