Innovative Grant – Solarize Asheville-Buncombe

Land of the Sky Association of Realtors® (LOTSAR) was recently awarded an Innovative Grant by NC Realtors® to support a local solar energy grant program – Solarize Asheville-Buncombe – for low-income and BIPOC households. Combined with funds contributed by LOTSAR, for a total of $6,000, and generous contributions by Nest Realty and Mosaic Realty of $3,200 each, a solar power system installation was fully subsidized for the Garcia family, with the remaining funds being reserved for the next recipient of the program. Representatives from LOTSAR, Nest Realty, Mosaic Realty, and Solarize Asheville-Buncombe were able to meet with the Garcias this past week and present the grant funds.

LOTSAR is using this event to announce the Neighbor to Neighbor (N2N) Solar Challenge. The nature of the N2N Solar Challenge is simple: we are asking local brokerage firms to step up like Nest Realty and Mosaic Realty did and help subsidize solar installations for other qualifying households in the area.
