North Carolina must develop a state Carbon Plan by the end of 2022 that reduces carbon dioxide emissions, a climate-changing pollutant. CleanAIRE NC is working with our partners to ensure a strong and equitable Carbon Plan is developed with the public interest in mind.
This summer hundreds of people gathered across North Carolina for public hearings to protest Duke Energy’s proposed Carbon Plan; a plan that includes more expensive, climate-changing fossil fuels and higher energy rates for North Carolina residents.
The next few months will be transformative for our state’s energy future and we still have an opportunity to speak up!
Tell state regulators you want a strong Carbon Plan centered around clean energy and people, not dirty fossil fuel and polluter interests.
Led by NC Climate Ambassadors, this recorded webinar provides an overview of the NC Carbon Plan, distinguishes between strategies that move us closer to a clean energy economy and those that don’t and discusses the best opportunities for us to engage collectively and individually in this important process.
