NC ranks 2nd in US for solar. Its biggest public boom is happening in Asheville, Buncombe – Citizen Times

ASHEVILLE РDespite topography and other obstacles that can dim solar energy prospects in the mountains Buncombe County is set to become the site of the biggest public solar boom in North Carolina, a state that is second in the country in solar.

Collectively, Buncombe County government, the City of Asheville and an individual initiative at Isaac Dickson Elementary School are spending $11.5 million on systems that will generate seven megawatts of power and put out enough energy for the equivalent of 829 homes (though the energy will go mostly to powering the public buildings). A portion of the cost will be returned in the form of rebates while more than half of the Isaac Dickson funds were donated. Projects are slated for completion on various dates through 2022.
