EnergyLink begins 46-building solar portfolio for North Carolina’s Buncombe County

EnergyLink’s construction team broke ground this week on a two-year large scale solar portfolio. This municipal project will overhaul energy usage for Buncombe County and the City of Asheville, with 46 of the public institutions’ buildings being retrofitted with solar.

In line with the company’s bespoke design-build-fund capabilities, one of EnergyLink’s construction teams will carry out the work. EnergyLink’s operations manager, Andrew Halpern, says: “this team will be ramping up over the next few weeks to deliver consistently high-quality product over a long, two-year project.”

The timing of this project aligns with the Biden administration’s desire to “upgrade 4 million buildings” to achieve “an equitable clean energy future” by 2050. The county’s choice to install solar will be a huge step closer towards energy independence and allow for onsite power generation of clean, renewable energy. Buncombe can also expect to see its carbon footprint reduced in the coming years as it benefits from adding 6.8 MW of solar.

“As a company, we are focused on undertaking projects that expand our reach within the industry. We have a proven track record with commercial & iIndustrial projects and it’s time now to start supporting the municipalities, universities, schools and hospitals in achieving their sustainability goals too,” said EnergyLink CEO Chris Ihler.
