Continuing an initiative to install solar panels on buildings in Asheville and Buncombe County, the City of Asheville recently "flipped the switch" on solar panels just installed at Fire Station 10. Located on Old Haywood Road, Fire Station 10 became the second facility to include renewable energy production. The photovoltaic array, or solar panels, will now provide about 40% of the energy consumed by the fire station. This installation, along with the first at the Transit Station on Coxe Avenue, support the Asheville City Council's 100% Renewable Energy Initiative and the council's goal of A Clean and Healthy Environment. The larger initiative includes installing solar panels on Buncombe County government, Asheville City and Buncombe County schools and AB-Tech facilities.
