Who are the companies?
We solicited proposals from over 60 solar and energy efficiency contractors in North Carolina and selected six local and reputable companies that we are confident in. Our residential solar installers are Asheville Solar Company and Sugar Hollow Solar. Our commercial solar installers are Renewable Design Associates and Haynes Energy Solutions. Our energy efficiency partners are Conservation Pros and Energy Investment Partners.
How does CE4WNC operate?
Included in the purchase price that we negotiate for campaign participants is a small one-time fee that is paid by the contractor directly to the Clean Energy for Us program so that we can cover our costs and continue administering clean energy campaigns in North Carolina.
Who are our partners?
CE4WNC has partnered with MountainTrue, the WNC Alliance and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE). We are supported by many local community groups and non-profit allies:
