On Wednesday, October 13, Governor Roy Cooper signed a bill called “Energy Solution for North Carolina” or HB 951. Standing behind a podium bearing the words Securing Our Clean Energy Future, Cooper confidently asserted “ … today I will sign a historic bill that gives us an extraordinary new tool in our fight against climate change. Today, North Carolina moves strongly into a reliable and affordable clean energy future.”
Clearly, this wasn’t the same HB 951 that had been negotiated behind closed doors by House Republicans, Duke Energy, and other industry groups and passed by the House on a 57-49 vote in July.
Starting this Memorial Day weekend, area swimmers, paddlers, anglers and others who enjoy spending time playing in our local rivers and streams can access up-to-date water quality results for more than 65 popular recreation areas throughout western North Carolina, northeastern Tennessee, and Towns and Union counties in north Georgia.
Email your North Carolina State Senator and Representative and urge them to support the bi-partisan Energy Bill compromise (revised HB 951) announced by Governor Roy Cooper and Senate President Pro Tempore Phil Berger. This bill would be a big bipartisan win that sets aggressive clean energy goals and establishes North Carolina as a leader on climate action in the Southeast.
The County’s Energy and Environment subcommittee has recommended a study for solar on the city schools, county schools and AB Tech. This work could drive another $20+ million in local solar investment on an estimated 40 more public facilities. Please act today and ask for the Commissioners’ support!
