Hearing on Energy Efficiency at NC Utilities Commission
August 20, 2013 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
The Utilities Commission will take public comments and then hear expert testimony on Duke Energy’s “Save-a-Watt” energy efficiency program proposal.
NC WARN and allies including the NC Housing Coalition will present their alternative proposal: the Community Enhanced Program. We are concerned that Duke’s plan would generate profits without assurances that power would actually be saved.

The Community Enhanced Program would redirect $30 million of Duke’s plan toward low, moderate and fixed income homes, where residents are continually threatened by high electricity costs and weather extremes. The Program would be administered by the NC Housing Finance Authority, a quasi-governmental agency that assists local governments, community action agencies, urban ministries and others across North Carolina.
