Energy costs keep rising. But we can have power over our monthly electric bills. Clean energy policies passed over the last seven years have brought costs down, created jobs and fueled our economy. By furthering access to renewable energy and energy saving solutions, we can have even more stability and control over rising prices. It’s time North Carolina’s outdated policies and regulations kept pace with the overwhelming demand for clean energy resources.

Electricity is the backbone of our society. It powers our homes, our schools, our businesses, our cities and our churches. You should have options beyond your single utility to get your electric bill under control. By working together in recent years, we’ve made a lot of progress in expanding our state’s clean energy economy, creating jobs, increasing renewable energy projects and becoming more energy efficient. If we’re going to make even more progress during this year’s legislative session, which begins in May, we need your involvement and engagement to build more support. Now is the time to make this happen! Learn how you can take charge when NCSEA’s “Energy Choices Now” Roadshow comes to a city near you.


Sign up below to attend the “Energy Choices Now” Roadshow event nearest you and we look forward to seeing you soon. (If you have any questions, please email Julie Robinson, NCSEA’s Director of Government Affairs, at julie@energync.org.)
