In the fall of 2002 our company was recognized in BP’s world wide publication “OnSite” for the installation of a 3kW photovoltaic (PV) system, donated to the Kinston-Lenoir Planetarium and Science Museum. This project was also featured in an article published by the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association in the “Carolina Sun” as well as being featured in several articles in the Kinston Free Press News Paper.

In 2011, the Kinston Free Press featured an article highlighting Cherry Energy's use of autogas as an alternative vehicle fuel. Later that day, the National Propane Gas Association picked up the article on the Associated Press and ran a feature article in their publication "Smart Briefs".
