“Cost matters.” That is one of the key points made by Locke’s Becki Gray on Tuesday as she testified about House Bill 951 before the North Carolina Senate Agriculture, Energy, and Environment Committee. The reliability of our energy sources should also be front and center as lawmakers debate what our state’s energy mix should be going forward.
Simply put, we’re at an energy crossroads in North Carolina. The decisions made today will impact every North Carolinian for years to come.
WATCH Becki explain that North Carolina has an exemplary record on emissions reduction, driven by its robust electricity generation from nuclear energy and its recent shift to natural gas.
