Now, Duke Energy has admitted once again to state regulators that it can’t back the PR with action. It can’t meet a state renewable energy requirement that it generate a tiny amount of electricity from hog waste now or anytime soon. By 2018, 0.2 percent of the renewable requirement was supposed to come from hog waste.
Op-Ed by Connie Leeper and Jodi Lasseter. Now that the winds and rains of Hurricane Florence have gone, North Carolinians are mobilizing a relief and recovery process for the eastern part of the state… Without an intentional focus on equity and access, this kind of giving often misses the people who are most in need of assistance and who have been leading the work to build community resilience long before this storm hit.
Making the batteries rechargeable and lowering their cost are seen as important advances in enabling the electric grid to depend on power from renewable sources.
Letter to the editor from Duke Energy. Jim Warren of NC WARN [is] back at it again, with thinly sourced claims, wild insinuations and plain old fear-mongering. It’s an insult to the people who have been working around the clock to restore power to the Carolinas. Out of respect to the work they’re doing, I’d like to provide some facts in response to the rhetoric.

Letter to the editor from Helen Wolfson. Amidst all the concern about Hurricane Florence (whose strength, scientists tell us, is fueled by climate change), today’s N&O contains an article [pointing out] that the Trump administration is preparing to make it much easier for energy companies to release methane into the atmosphere.
Op-Ed by Jason West – With Hurricane Florence bearing down on the Carolinas, our attention is focused where it needs to be — evacuating the coast, stocking our shelves, and making plans to keep our families safe. But while we do those things, we should be aware that this storm, like others, is partially of our creating.
Op-Ed by Jim Warren. There’s good news — outside of North Carolina — in the increasingly desperate fight to slow the climate crisis before its own momentum makes acceleration unstoppable.
The natural gas industry is on a mission to prove it can keep up with the green energy industry, whose price reductions are starting to become a competitive threat to fossil fuels.
It is a brisk, sunny morning in November, and Don Harrod, the village administrator of Minster, Ohio, is standing in the middle of the town’s 4.2-megawatt (MW) solar field, talking about why plans to expand the project won’t include community solar — at least not yet.
