We held a Volunteer Launch Party at the Boone office to engage community members who care about energy efficiency in our local campaign, focusing on Blue Ridge Electric Membership Cooperative.
The cooperative utility is working with us to make energy efficiency more accessible to its members, but they want to know their members support the kind of finance program we are suggesting. Our goal is to get 2,500 signatures of support by August. Live in the High Country and want to help us? Sign the letter here or contact email@example.com to learn about other opportunities for involvement.
