You are better off going totally off grid. Off grid eliminates the need for the hugely expensive phasing equipment and makes your home/farm installation affordable and economically practical. After a huge on grid investment, the power companies will only pay pennies per kw hr. Your equipment is shot before it even reaches payback/break even. This is intended to keep a power company monopoly on power generation.

<quoted text> I wasn't saying put anyone under the gun, just enough of us citizens show up at a meeting to ask their opinion of how to get a solar manufacturing plant into one of these emply building that once was used for furniture manufacturing. I use passive solar in my home and wood heat for heating. Also, have outside solar lights, spotlights, etc. I'd like to use more solar and wind energy and tie into the grids to sell excess power to the power company. That would help me financially to get a check from the power company rather than to have to pay them. It is possible.

The only thing travelers want to see in downtown Lenoir is-- the way out of Lenoir.

<quoted text> Boo, I once had a visitor from New York who drove to Blowing Rock to visit me. He asked where Lenoir was after he got to BR. He said he saw a beautiful lighted 321 and thought that was leading into Lenoir. He said he never found Lenoir. I'm afraid that's a general opinion of out of towners. Of course, that was 30 years ago and we do have some stores and restaurants on 321 now, but general travelers never see the downtown of Lenoir.

I work for furniture brands they haven't been paying vendors for a while now.We haven't had a raise in 6 years but the big ceo sure gets his money.I would like to see somebody buy them out who will treat the employees right.It's always do a good job and hurry up lets get this out just so we can be off.No one tells us we do a good job they just want their bonus in their pockets.I knew when they fired a guy for praying that it would go to hell in a handbag.God is being taken out of everything and that's what is wrong with the world today.

The downtown looks pretty nice, but really there is nothing there anymore. A few coffee shops and bakeries, a Mexican store that only opens part time, a junk store, an expensive farmer's market, and a few other things. We need stores that have things people really need other than to spend a couple dollars for a cup of coffee, then sit there all day cause you have no other place to go. It's sad. We have no mall and there is nothing downtown.

Is it true that one of the executives shot himself a few years back right in his office when they told him his job had ended? I think he was old enough to retire.

Exactly, another unwise decision our commissioners made.. What about all the promised jobs at the dog food plant? A few but not many..
Jobs at the dog food plant are a joke. They pay nothing and their health insurance costs over $500.00 per month for the family plan. They don't even have a retirement plan. He is just building it up to sell it off in a couple of years.

FB is looking for buyers for at least some of their brands. Perhaps someone will buy them and be more successful at running them.

. Just 3 years ago they were threatening to move to Alabama unless we gave them money. The scam worked and they got 4 million dollars of taxpayer money in cash,$2 million from Caldwell County and $2 million from NC. Then they gave $1 million dollars of our tax money to Jeff Cook for a "bonus" . If they had invested OUR money for its intended purpose of stabilizing their business instead of giving it away in "bonuses", they would have been able to pay their suppliers. Now they know the moving to Alabama story will not work a second time, even on Caldwell County commissioners, so now this. The county had a big tax increase in the hidden form of an "revaluation" and cash reserves are being "saved". With that pile of money just sitting there, everyone has their eye on it. Caldwell taxpayers, hold onto your wallet. Here we go again. Looks like our county leaders are still being afflicted with the idolatrous Broyhill (FB) worship syndrome.
