A novel justification for governments heavily subsidizing otherwise unsustainable, expensive, inefficient renewable energy is to argue that all energy sources get subsidies. The general assertion is true as far as that goes. Still, the argument is often used as a variant of...

Solar energy is said to be renewable because it is "naturally replenished." One source defines solar power as renewable because "there is an endless supply." But the truth of the matter is that in any meaningful technological, economic, or practical sense solar is anything but renewable...

A lengthy article in Forbes details why the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's unprecedented "Clean Power Plan" (CPP) is not just a destructive and likely illegal regulatory overreach, but also impossible given what the author calls the "weird" physics of electricity.

New research from the Institute for Energy Research shows more than ever before how the Obama administration's approach to energy policy is fulfilling the president's 2008 vision of "necessarily skyrocket[ing]" electricity rates.

An amended version of the regulatory reform bill (HB 760), sponsored by Reps. Chris Millis (R-Pender), John R. Bell IV (R-Wayne), and Dennis Riddell (R-Alamance), would make several changes that would protect electricity consumers in North Carolina from unnecessary price increases.

“The fact of the matter is,” said Gov. Pat McCrory recently, “if we don’t have reasonable and reliable and low electric rates throughout North Carolina, we’re not going to be successful in having the Carolina Comeback throughout North Carolina.”

House Republicans are taking another whack at ending subsidies attached to government-mandated purchases of renewable energy. House Bill 681 would require solar and other "green" power to compete with traditional fuel sources in the government-regulated electricity industry and determine the energy

If an industry can provide its product only by using the government to force others to deal with it, then it is not an industry that can be functional in a truly free market. This is the case for the solar power industry, including what are called third-party sales of solar-generated electricity.

Electricity is one of the most basic household necessities. It isn't a luxury item. That means it is something that every household must buy, regardless of income level - and as such, its costs are especially burdensome on the poor.

What can be done to help the poor is a perennial issue in politics, and with it comes what is to me a real puzzler. Why do those who seem most adamant that government programs are the best way to serve the needs of the poor also seem the least interested in whether those programs actually work?

North Carolina consumers would have saved $4.2 billion since 2007 if mandates on electric power utilities to purchase expensive renewable energy had not driven costs well above the U.S. average, said a nationally recognized energy and environmental policy analyst.

Does North Carolina need an energy policy? In my view, it depends on what you mean by the phrase. If by "energy policy" you mean a detailed plan of requirements and timetables for producing and distributing electricity and fuel in proportions set by government fiat, then the answer is a resolute...

This week's Bad Bill of the Week is SB 362, Study Energy Efficiency Standards. Sponsored by Sen. Eleanor Kinnaird (D-Orange), this bill would create a study of an ineffective "tiered" billing format for electricity, impossible goals for electricity-use reduction, and an ambiguous "pollution tax."

In 2007 the North Carolina General Assembly passed far-reaching electricity regulations, typically referred to as Senate Bill 3. At the heart of this bill is a 12.5 percent "renewable energy and energy efficiency portfolio standard."
