Duke Energy and Dominion Resources want to build a 550-mile pipeline to bring natural gas from fracking fields in West Virginia and Pennsylvania to power plants in North Carolina. The project is part of a major shift to make gas “the backbone” of Duke Energy’s future, according to Duke CEO Lynn Good.

NC WARN is a member of the North Carolina Alliance to Protect Our People And The Places We Live: Stop the Pipeline, which is allied with a coalition of Virginia organizations that is also working to stop the proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).

Get involved!

  • March 4-19, 2017: Join us for all or part of a walk along the 205-mile NC portion of the proposed route of the ACP. Special stops include a clean energy summit and a traditional Lumbee spring equinox celebration. Details here.
  • Contact Connie 704/701-6762, for other ways to be involved.


In April 2016, NC WARN petitioned the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to accept us as a party in the legal case over the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).
