 Asheville Real Estate Journal: Renewable Energy

If you have been considering the pros and cons of “aging in place” –thinking about rehabs and remodelers, you have powerful possibilities when it comes to energizing your home and getting around it with comfort.  You can do so much these days just by the way you site your  home on the land to take advantage of solar gain, and save energy costs. Inside, you can add skylights, retrofit windows to increase R-Value and enjoy the sunlight. You can pull together  a stylish, comfortable, and beautiful "palace" that is also non-toxic and environmentally friendly.

Here in Asheville, you  really  can get into Solar Power. (See Part 2 for details)

Out at the Environmental Learning Center at Warren Wilson College, just 15 minutes from downtown  Asheville, a group of ECO Certified Real Estate Consultants took a field trip recently to  get familiar with how solar panels actually work. We touched them, we saw the batteries, and saw how they worked.



Check out Clean Energy for Western North Carolina, a local campaign that makes it easy and affordable for homeowners, businesses, and tax-exempt entities to go solar and invest in energy efficiency, a welcome respite if you are concerned with your energy bills. The organization vets contractors; negotiates discounted solar pricing and organizes energy audits for qualified participants. And you can benefit from their work..
