As noted in Part (1), when considering the pros and cons of “aging in place” you have powerful possibilities when it comes to energizing your home and getting around it with comfort. Customer groups are looking to " lift some of the technical and financial restrictions on distributed generation in North Carolina,” according to utilities reporter, Julia Pyper. This includes “ re-authorizing PACE loans, improving customer access to their energy usage data and lifting the ban on third-party sales arrangements.” There's light dawning on Asheville's beautiful horizon.

There’s good news on the employment front in North Carolina’s cleantech industry as well. According to the 2014 North Carolina Clean Energy Industry Census by the N.C. Sustainable Energy Association, the industry now includes 22,995 full-time employees and more than 1,200 firms conducting clean-energy-related business.
Pyper who covers utilities, grid issues, electric vehicles, the solar industry and energy storage, also reports that “... solar isn't far behind... with annual earnings of $1.6 billion. According to the latest tally from GTM Research, North Carolina was the second-largest solar market in terms of new capacity added in 2014 and the fourth-largest solar market overall.”
