Green building and energy-efficient homes help put the Western North Carolina mountains in the forefront of the eco-friendly construction movement. In Weaverville and throughout the WNC Blue Ridge, homes are being built with active/passive solar systems, geothermal heating and cooling, energy-efficient radiant floor heat, and other green technologies in residential construction.
Not only are new residences and retrofitted older homes meeting SEER standards; bed and breakfasts, restaurants, and other businesses, including retirement communities and special events and festivals, are also supporting green lifestyles.
Even those who aren’t convinced about the origins of global climate change can benefit from energy-friendly building practices: efficient energy use leads to measurable savings in monthly bills while conserving North Carolina’s precious natural resources.
So, when you plan a visit know that the residents and businesses are doing their best to offer you the greenest selections within our delicate and cherished environment.
