Arizona repeals wind / solar energy mandate; NC should follow | Eastern North Carolina Now

Arizona has just voted to end its Renewable Portfolio Standards mandating minimums for wind and solar in the energy mix of electric utility companies.  Utilities will now be free to use whatever source of energy is least expensive and most reliable.  Wind and solar have shown themselves to be both expensive and unreliable.  Arizona follows Montana and West Virginia in totally eliminating Renewable Portfolio Standards.

North Carolina adopted its Renewable Portfolio Standards back when Democrats still controlled the legislature, but a GOP attempt to repeal them was blocked by liberal Republican former House Speaker Thom Tillis, who had personal financial investments tied to "green energy".  More recently, liberal Republican Senate boss Phil Berger rammed through NC's own Green New Deal, HB 951, which doubled down on moving to expensive and unreliable wind and solar.

Germans pay three times what we do for electricity due to this wind / solar madness. It is time for Americans and particularly North Carolinians to wake up and drive a stake through the heart of this monster. Part of our problem is the liberal Republicans like Phil Berger and TIm Moore who prostitute themselves to the special interests like "woke" utility monopoly Duke Energy and are driving this crap in our state.
