In 2010, the City Council of Asheville, North Carolina adopted a goal of reducing its carbon footprint by 20% over five years. They adopted a broad range of initiatives with the largest project replacing all 9,000 of the city’s street lights with energy efficient LED fixtures. Of the 17 environmental projects totaling over $10 million in project costs, over half were funded through grants. .
