Got climate change paralysis? (plus, save the date!)

Do you ever feel climate change paralysis?

Maybe you heard sixteen year old Greta Thunberg remind the world this past Tuesday that things are not… great.

Maybe you’ve long been among the seven in ten Americans who believe climate change is our reality.

Maybe concern for our future is always there, floating like a thundercloud in the back of your mind.

But if you’re like us, what’s also floating around in your mind is figuring out what to cook for dinner tonight.

And remembering to vacuum your living room. And paying utility bills. Oh, and also unwinding at the end of a long day while you do your best to not think about stressful stuff. You know, life.

The thing is, you know it’s time.

You know you want to be a part of the solution.

But it’s overwhelming.

For one, where do you even start? And life is busy. You’re already doing so much. How could you fit in anything else?

We’re with you 100%.

In fact, we’re gonna go ahead and say Climate Change Paralysis Due to Overwhelm is probably a real thing.

But hear us out: what if there were a few super simple steps you could take that translated into everyday impact — without you having to keep up with them?

Set-it-and-forget-it kind of stuff.

What if you could join your friends in doing a few small things, and collectively make a serious impact?

Imagine knowing that, no matter what, your home is reducing CO2 every single day, without you having to do a thing.

For us, that’s what energy efficiency and solar power are all about.

Because the truth is you don’t have to be a super-hero off-grid environmental activist to make a difference in climate change.

So as part of WNC For the Planet (a month-long Asheville celebration of Earth Month) we’re partnering with Blue Horizons to put on a workshop on residential energy efficiency and solar energy.

It’s next Thursday at 5:30 pm. And it’s free!

This event is for you if you’re curious about either energy efficiency or solar power, both big picture and at home.


What: Joint Energy Efficiency and Solar Info-session

Who: Put on by Blue Horizons Project and Sugar Hollow Solar

Where: Cloud Room, Wedge at Foundation.

Date: Next Thursday, April 25th

Time: 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm


First, Blue Horizons will kick off the energy efficiency portion of the evening. They’ll talk about what’s going on with energy demand in WNC, and how you personally help reduce it. (You can read more about their work here and here.)

Next up, we’ll chat about what kind of climate impact solar has, plus how to know if solar could be right for your home.

We’ll follow up with a open ended discussion and Q&A.

So bring your questions. Bring your concerns. And bring your climate-conscious friends. 😉

We promise you’ll leave inspired.

And beyond inspiration, you’ll also come away with super doable methods to shrink your home carbon footprint for instant impact: on your quality of life, your utility bills — and yep, climate change.

See ya there??


P.S. What do you think? Is climate change paralysis a thing? Do you ever feel it? What keeps you inspired and motivated to be part of the shift?

Ready for comfort, security, and savings?
