On May 11th NCIPL hosted the 2nd Annual Faith Voices for Clean Energy Advocacy Day. Members of faith communities from across the state met with representatives of the NC General Assembly to hear their vision for North Carolina’s energy future and to express our support for new and existing clean energy policies.
Throughout the legislative session you can participate virtually in the Faith Voices for Clean Energy campaign by sending emails to your members of the NC General Assembly through NCIPL’s online system.
Clean energy policies in NC are generating billions of dollars for the economy and creating thousands of full time jobs across the state. There are currently over 26,000 full time equivalent (FTE) clean energy employees in NC who are generating $7 billion (45% increase since 2014) in gross revenues for our state’s economy. North Carolina’s clean energy policies are also saving ratepayers money. A 2015 study by RTI International and ScottMadden found that North Carolina’s Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (REPS) policy has saved customers $162 million since 2007 and will save them an estimated additional $489 million by 2029.
North Carolina’s clean energy polices help to care for Creation by significantly reducing pollution across the state, which contributes to healthier communities and a better quality of life for all North Carolinians.
