Solar Installation Complete on St. Paul’s Missionary Baptist Cathedral!
In 2022, we helped this local church, a pillar of Asheville’s African American community dating back generations, to add an 8.6KW solar array to their ancillary building. Housing Sunday school classes, a day care, and other local community events, this project helps the church reduce energy costs and focus more of their dollars on their charitable work within the community.
Thank you for helping us fund Isaac Dickson Elementary School’s solar system!
We have officially marked the successful completion of our fundraising campaign to put solar on Isaac Dickson Elementary School. The system was installed in 2021, and we are moving forward on several new fundraising focuses in 2022. Stay tuned for updates and support the future of this local solution by donating to our nonprofit’s local carbon-offsetting program today.

Appalachian Offsets supports local clean energy projects for schools and nonprofits!
Your contribution directly improves our community by making possible a local clean-energy project for a school, nonprofit or affordable housing provider. Projects include energy-efficiency lighting retrofits, water-conservation upgrades and solar-energy installations. We are also exploring local tree-planting projects. Be part of the solution in your own backyard and help mitigate the dangers of climate change.
Transparency and verification are crucial. When you donate to Appalachian Offsets, we provide you with a tax-deductible donation letter and a certificate for your offset with details on the local project you helped fund. We verify each project through a third-party contractor to ensure the project was installed correctly and meets modeled energy savings.
Show off that you are doing your part by displaying our Appalachian Offsets decal at your business or on your car. By donating, you are joining a group of inspired citizens dedicated to a healthier community and planet.Who benefits in your community? Who in your community is buying the offsets?
