ULTIMATE ICE CREAM SUPPORTS SOLAR + HONEYBEES

The Southern Alliance for Clean Energy (SACE) and Ultimate Ice Cream are partnering for the “Flavor of the Month” program in August to celebrate the connections between solar energy and honeybees!

All month long, you can enjoy a scoop of Sunny Honey Lavender Blueberry to support SACE! The honey supports local beekeepers at Haw Creek Honey, and lavender and blueberries are both pollinator-friendly plants.

This August, swing by either of these Ultimate Ice Cream locations in Asheville, NC: 1070 Tunnel Rd or 95 Charlotte St

As solar grows across the sunny Southeast, we hope this partnership will spread awareness about the environmental benefits of planting native, pollinator-friendly plants around solar arrays. Honeybees need nectar and pollen to sustain their hives and make honey, and solar farms have the land in between the solar arrays to grow these important food sources, which can be cheaper to maintain because less mowing is needed. This is a sweet partnership just waiting to swarm the next solar farm!

Drive an electric vehicle or interested in learning more from EV owners? Please JOIN US for an EV Group Ride & Ice Cream Social at Ultimate Ice Cream (1070 Tunnel Rd, Asheville, NC 28805) on Wednesday, August 9 from 4-6PM. Learn more & RSVP on Facebook here.
