Statement from Conservatives for Clean Energy on NC House Bill 589 (Competitive Energy Solutions for NC)

HB 589 (“Competitive Energy Solutions for NC”) becoming law represents a significant victory for solar energy growth in our state and demonstrates how much we can accomplish when legislators work across the aisle. Although we support the tremendous advancement in solar policy, we remain concerned about the ill-conceived and unnecessary wind energy moratorium that was added in the 11th hour. The wind energy moratorium provision slams on the brakes of much needed economic development in our most rural communities in eastern North Carolina.

Conservatives for Clean Energy remains committed to educating about the economic benefits of all clean energy.
