The North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association (NCSEA) has entered into an agreement with Duke Energy and Progress Energy to try to design an on-bill financing program that will work for the utilities, their customers and renewable energy and energy efficiency developers
Energy efficiency improvements and rooftop solar are often too costly for customers, even after taking utility incentives into account. Duke, Progress and NCSEA will explore the feasibility of an on-bill financing program that addresses the up-front cost hurdle. A successfully implemented program would promote a more resilient, secure and affordable energy future for all of North Carolina.
Duke, Progress and NCSEA hope the Public Staff, the South Carolina Regulatory, NC Attorney General, NAACP, AARP, the NC Justice Center, Environmental Defense Fund and the NC Farm Bureau will be direct participants the discussion.
