How does North Carolina incentivize clean energy production and infrastructure? What are the rules governing household electricity rates? How are we helping families adopt rooftop solar and electric vehicles, and what more could we be doing?
All of these crucial decisions involve the North Carolina Utilities Commission (NCUC), a group of seven appointed regulators who wield immense power over our energy and climate policy. Come learn how this little-known state agency works, and how a few people can make a huge difference to NC’s clean energy future.
Pulling Back the Curtain: Who’s Charting Our Energy Future?
Class 1: The Regulatory Process in North Carolina
Utility companies benefit from NCUC proceedings dominated by complex and arcane policy arguments that can feel inaccessible to many energy advocates. The goal of this course is to explain in plain language how the current regulatory system works, and how advocates and nonprofits can get involved to move this system in a better direction.
Participants will learn:
- What is the NCUC, and why it’s important;
- How we can create a system that’s more just, and that puts people over profits;
- Why our current policies are incentivizing utilities to hang onto fossil fuels, and what we can do to change that;
- And much more.
