Oct. 8, 2014. On Thursday, Oct. 9, Appalachian Voices is launching a region-wide contest, with thousands of dollars in prizes that will result in substantial savings on electric bills for three local winners. The contest aims to raise public awareness about the many benefits to individuals, local communities and the environment of energy efficiency home improvements.
The contest is timed to coincide with the coming winter season, when many families in the High Country see their electric bills skyrocket due to increased energy costs and leaky windows, doors and attics. It will cover the the Blue Ridge Electric Membership Cooperative service area (generally, Alleghany, Ashe, Caldwell and Watauga counties, and parts of Avery, Alexander and Wilkes counties).
