Modest increases in energy efficiency, combined with local solar power and battery storage can allow the rapid phase-out of all gas- and coal-fired power plants in North Carolina. This shift is North Carolina’s primary opportunity to help slow the accelerating climate crisis. This work must become everybody’s movement in order to be successful – lifting up and engaging people across the racial and socio-economic spectrum.
The movement away from fossil fuels will help all customers while also rebuilding our economy by creating thousands of clean energy jobs, as is happening in other states and countries.
In partnership with social justice, environmental, consumer protection, housing, labor and faith allies, NC WARN is working to change Duke Energy’s business model of building unneeded, expensive gas-fired power plants, repeatedly raising electricity rates and spending millions annually to silence and distort public debate.
We pursue this work through grassroots activism, technical analysis, legal challenges and media exposure of problems and solutions.
