Tell Buncombe County’s Board of Commissioners: Thanks for Voting for the Solar RFP. Now, Make Solar Energy a Reality.

On November 5, Buncombe County’s Board of Commissioners voted 6-1 to request proposals for solar energy on county-owned buildings and land. With their vote, the County has taken a crucial first step in walking their talk on renewable energy. Now, we’re calling on the Board of Commissioners to go beyond exploring renewable energy to funding and building it – and to get started as soon as possible.

Update on the Buck Project in Nantahala National Forest

Update on the Buck Project in Nantahala National Forest

The Forest Service has proposed a new plan, Alternative G, for the Buck Project in Nantahala National Forest. While we support some improvements in this plan – like some watershed repairs and controlled burns in the Buck Creek Serpentine Barrens – Alternative G still does tremendous harm to wild places, soil, water and old-growth forest, and goes against the wishes of hundreds of people that commented on the project.
