Program Spotlight: Blue Horizons Project
Started as a collaborative partnership between the City of Asheville, Buncombe County, Duke Energy, and local businesses, the Blue Horizons Project is housed out of Green Built Alliance as a community resource for creating a clean energy future.

As the effects of climate change are being felt more dramatically worldwide, local action is critically important. The Blue Horizons Project has identified a few simple steps every home and business can take, and small shifts each person can make to conserve energy, save money, and protect the planet.

Visit the website to explore the simple ways you can help, and read a recent article on our work from our supporters at the Southeast Sustainability Directors Network.
