for implementing renewable energy.


In the past two years, the City of Asheville and Buncombe County have both adopted renewable energy goals.

The City and County have both committed to transition all government operations from fossil-fueled energy (coal, natural gas, propane, gasoline, etc.) to renewable energy (solar, wind, etc.) by 2030.

Find information about the City’s renewable energy resolution at this link.

Buncombe County also has a goal to transition all of Buncombe County, including the City of Asheville, to 100% renewable energy by 2042.


What’s happening now

The City and County have partnered to engage a consultant to develop a roadmap to implement these goals. The project got underway in January 2019 and is expected to wrap up by July 2019.

Now we are asking our residents for their input. This survey is intended to get your perspective on what actions the City and County should prioritize in achieving this goal.

This survey will be open through March 13. It is expected to take 5 to 10 minutes of your time. So weigh in! Here is a link to the survey.
