Our fight for a cleaner world doesn't stop with solar energy. To kick off 2021, we're excited to announce our partnership with @AVLGreenWorks with a $5,000 donation that will help develop a pollinator habitat along the River Arts District trail.

Through our SolarCulture™ initiative, we've been establishing pollinator habitats at the sites of various solar projects we work on for years, but this will be the first one in our hometown. It's part of the City of Asheville’s French Broad Riverway Tree & Riparian Enhancement Plan that will develop multiple pollinator habitats in the coming months and years.
