Vermont solar company to donate to NC gender law repeal

WILLISTON, Vt. (AP) — AllEarth Renewables, a Vermont-based solar tracker manufacturer, has announced the company will donate a portion of every tracker sale in North Carolina to the repeal effort of state law HB 2, which it calls discriminatory.

HB 2 overturned protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgendered people in North Carolina.

AllEarth says it will donate 1 percent of every sale in North Carolina to Equality NC — an organization leading the HB 2 repeal effort — until the law is repealed.

The company says North Carolina has one of the fastest growing solar markets in the country and ranked second nationwide for solar installations in 2015.

AllEarth has five solar installers providing its solar tracking technology to homes, businesses, and non-profits throughout North Carolina.
