From Blue Horizons Project

The Blue Horizons Project is your community resource for creating our clean energy future. It was started as a collaboration between Buncombe County, the City of Asheville, Duke Energy, and local businesses as a way to reduce Western North Carolina’s carbon footprint and provide money-saving resources for homes and businesses.


Whether your goal is conserving energy, saving money, or protecting the planet, start your New Year off right by saving up to $75 per year by enrolling in EnergyWise Home. Visit and click on Save Energy Today > My Home > Lower Peak Demand to  reduce your bill. This important program lowers our region's peak energy demand and reduces the need for new power plants.
