Please share your comments on the Asheville/Buncombe 100% renewable energy draft report.
In 2018, City Council adopted Resolution 18-279, calling for the City of Asheville to transition municipal operations from fossil-fuel energy to 100% renewable energy by Dec. 31, 2030. The resolution also calls for City support of Buncombe County’s renewable energy community goal. In partnership, the two governments are working together to identify strategies to get there.
The first step has been a community engagement and analysis by a consultant retained by both governments, the Cadmus Group, a technical consultant focused on energy, climate and public health issues.
Working in the first half of this year with City and County Offices of Sustainability, focus groups and informed by a public survey, the Cadmus Group has delivered its draft report, “Moving to 100 Perfect: Renewable Energy Pathways Transition Analysis for Buncombe County and the City of Asheville.”
The report is posted on the City of Asheville website at this link.
Please review the draft report at the link provided, then scroll down to “take the survey” and provide your comments.
