With their new carbon plan, Duke Energy leaders remain on a rate-hiking, climate- and community-wrecking track for North Carolina. The solar they propose would be built many years from now – if ever – and too late to help the climate crisis.
While greatly expanding power generation using fracked gas, and promoting pipe-dreams like hydrogen and new nukes, Duke keeps blocking the local, rooftop solar-plus-storage that’s the fastest, cheapest way to decarbonize NC.
Gov. Roy Cooper needs to raise his voice – and stop his Utilities Commission from continually rubber-stamping Duke Energy’s reckless actions.
