NC WARN is a member-based nonprofit tackling the accelerating crisis posed by climate change – along with the various risks of nuclear power – by watch-dogging Duke Energy practices and working for a swift North Carolina transition to energy efficiency and clean power generation. In partnership with other citizen groups, NC WARN uses sound scientific research to inform and involve the public in key decisions regarding their well-being.
We must replace energy from coal and natural gas with energy efficiency and clean power generation as quickly as possible. Modest increases in efficiency, renewable energy and cogeneration can allow the phase-out of all existing coal-fired power plants in North Carolina.
This shift is North Carolina’s primary opportunity to help slow climate change.
It will also rebuild our economy by creating thousands of clean energy jobs, as is happening in other states and countries.
We must cancel licensing efforts for new nuclear power plants.
In partnership with allies, including Greenpeace, AARP-NC, the NC Housing Coalition and the NC Justice Center, NC WARN is working to change Duke Energy’s business model of building unneeded, expensive power plants and repeatedly raising our electricity rates.
