NC electric ratepayers to see first double digit rise from NC Green New Deal | Eastern North Carolina Now

Everywhere in the world that globalist politicians have pushed transitions to wind and solar, this has been accompanied by very large electric rate increases.  North Carolina is no different now that globalist RINOs Phil Berger and Tim Moore pushed through North Carolina's Green New Deal, HB 951.  The North Carolina Utilities Commission has approved a double digit rate increase requested by Duke Energy to impose "clean energy", a euphemism for wind and solar, neither of which is really "clean".  This is certain to be the first of many such increases.

Europe experienced double digit rates increases after the adoption of the EU's Green New two years ago, and they just keep coming.  Australia has seen the same thing.

For the corrupt way that North Carolina was shoved into this position by globalist RINOs Tim Moore and Phil Berger, see:

Natural gas has nothing to do with it. As Duke Energy clearly said, their double digit rate increase is due to using solar and wind, which are more expensive and require a lot more infrastructure changes. They are also intermittant sources that must be backed up when they are not producing with power bought at expensive prices on the spot market.

We should all remember that it was globalist RINO Sen. Jim Perry of Kinston, who pushed hard for this globalist wind and solar mess. Perry was pushing the energy policy of Biden and working against the energy policy of Trump. Now electric customers are starting to pay the price for what Perry and others did to us. Perry and his bunch can all get stuffed.
