''Compromise version"????? This Senate version of the HB951 was to the left of even the awful House version, and an even bigger sellout to the green left and to "woke" utility monopoly Duke Energy. It is even left of the EU's version of their "Green Deal". While Becki Gray stated sound principles that Locke supports including basing utility decisions on consumer cost and reliability, and also supporting forcing solar farms to make clean up arrangements for when they are no longer viable. she is completely in la-la land on the impacts of this bill. Thinking "woke" Duke Energy is going to build any more nuclear plants is just delusional, as they are concerned about their ESG score with the green left. Duke wants wind and solar which are neither reliable nor cheap. The main thrust of this bill is to help Duke kill coal fired power, the cheapest and one of the most reliable and replace it with expensive and unreliable wind and solar. It does so by requiring a 70% reduction in CO2 emissions by 2030 (the EU is only 50% by 2030). Furthermore, this bill leaves it up to leftwing Cooper appointees in conjunction with "woke" Duke to work out the details. The politics of why Gray would sugar coat this bad bill are mystifying.
