The Carbon Plan should be an opportunity to reshape North Carolina’s energy future and protect community health. That means no new fossil fuel infrastructure or power plants.
Unfortunately, the draft Carbon Plan proposed by Duke Energy fails to meet the moment, calling for more investments in polluting, outdated fossil fuels. Continuing to rely on gas and coal would put our state’s climate targets out of reach while pumping out air pollutants that jeopardize our health and make us sick.
CleanAIRE NC is working with partners and communities around North Carolina to create a clean energy Carbon Plan that protects people, not fossil fuel profits. We are urging the NC Utilities Commission (NCUC) to do their job and not hand this process over to the utility monopoly they are supposed to regulate.
We are speaking up at hearings, submitting public comments, and empowering communities to make their voices heard. We are committed to working with the NCUC and other stakeholders to ensure North Carolina has the strongest Plan possible.
Join us on March 13, 2024 at 11:00am for a virtual Lunch & Learn webinar titled “Shaping the Carbon Plan Through Community Engagement.” During the hour-long session, we will:
The Carbon Plan will significantly impact every North Carolinian—from air quality and public health to economic opportunities and environmental sustainability. This is your chance to be heard and influence the future of our state. RSVP Today >>

In 2022, 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.
