NC WARN is pleased for every new amount of solar installed in North Carolina – and hope it helps the solar power industry get more business. But we urge the news media to put Duke Energy’s newly announced rebate program into perspective:
Despite all the image ads and deceptive PR, Duke Energy’s generation in the Carolinas remains under 2% renewable. In 2031, Duke plans to be at only 6%.
To be clear, Duke Energy is not merely “making the transition to clean power more slowly than some would like to see,” a common PR refrain.
With its huge expansion of climate-wrecking fracked gas, Duke Energy is pushing humanity headlong toward runaway climate change – while doing just enough renewable power to make people think it’s a green corporation.Donate Now
