This is nothing other than the Green New Deal. Other countries that have gone this route have found that wind and solar are NOT reliable due to the intermittent nature of both, and they are certainly not cheap. Pushing wind and solar is why Germans pay three times the residential rates for electricity that North Carolinians do now. A recent contract for offshore wind electricity signed by a utility in New York set whole prices for that electricity at four and a half times the prevailing wholesale rate for conventional electricity.

The Republican legislative leaders who sold North Carolina electric customers down the river on this bill need to be primaried out of office.
