The EPA guidelines on reducing carbon come out soon. Each state can set its own plan. This is a genuine opportunity for North Carolina, which is a national leader in high-tech energy. This cutting-edge industry offers not only a lot of new and local jobs but a source of energy that’s grown cheaper than fossil fuel. Meanwhile, the new home batteries partner up for more savings and a whole lot of independence from the grid.
But lately, we have heard rumblings out of Raleigh from politicians who are trying to prove their hard-line bona fides by cutting off North Carolina’s success at the knees.
With some encouragement, we should be leading the way into tech energy for considerable profit and benefit. As a citizen, I respectfully request that the governor not turn his back but apply his expertise to providing a radiant future for the young generation.
