Largest US electric grid supplier warns of electricity shortage due to mandates | Eastern North Carolina Now

Government mandates to decommission conventional electricity sources like coal and gas and replace them with expensive and unreliable "green" sources will lead to electricity shortages in the US according to America's largest electric grid supplier. The forced premature closing of conventional electric power plants is a result of both EPA regulations and state laws pushed by progressives like North Carolina's Green New Deal, HB951.

The analysis concludes:

- expect to pay much higher prices for electricity

- expect brownouts

- expect missed targets

- expect many wind / solar projects to be deemed economically unviable

- expect all of this to lead to higher inflation

- don't expect any of it to do anything for the environment

Residents of Beaufort, Craven, and Lenoir counties need to remember that it was uber-RINO Sen. Jim Perry who pushed hard for NC's Green New Deal, whose mandates have already led to a double digit electric rate increase with MUCH more to come. Our voters need to dump this special interest operative in the next primary. Perry also just screwed us on the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, a ultra liberal bill he pushed for to help the special interests.
