WNC Sierra Club: Save Money and the Environment – ELECTRIFY Your Home with New Programs

April 3 @ 7:00 pm

What measures are in the Inflation Reduction Act that can help you save on energy and reduce greenhouse gases to help the planet?

The Federal Inflation Reduction Act aims to make electric living affordable. Sophie Mullinax of Electrify Asheville-Buncombe will introduce ways we can all benefit at the WNC Sierra Club’s April program, to be held at 7 p.m. on April 3 at the OLLI/Reuter Center.

Beyond federal goals, the City of Asheville and Buncombe County’s ambitious clean-energy goals have resulted in a community-wide objective of achieving complete clean-energy reliance by 2042. Electrification of our buildings is a crucial strategy to get Buncombe County to 100% renewable energy by 2042.

At home, some residents are buying solar panels and others electric cars. Now residents with less cash can contribute to the goals, while saving on the initial and operating costs, because of the Biden Administration’s IRA, Electrify Asheville and others.

“Our goal is to connect consumers and community members with information about electrification, electric machines, available incentives, and vetted local contractors who can install them,” Mullinax says. “There will be opportunities to group-buy to achieve discounted pricing.”

The WNC Sierra Club meets monthly in Room 102 at UNCA’s Reuter Center/OLLI and simultaneously on Zoom. Our programs are free and open to the public. Click here to join the Zoom meeting.
