NC General Assembly

2015 Legislative Agenda

 

Dear NCSEA Members and Friends,

The NC Sustainable Energy Association has outlined its 2015 Legislative Agenda. This agenda will guide our engagement on issues over the coming year that will have a profound impact on the growth, health and direction of North Carolina’s clean energy economy.

To ensure that all North Carolinians continue to benefit from clean energy development in North Carolina, NCSEA will work with the General Assembly and the Governor in 2015 to:

  • Review economic development policies, including the renewable energy investment tax credit, and continue to advocate for those policies that will keep North Carolina’s clean energy economy growing and globally competitive.
     
  • Advocate for the continuation of the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (REPS).
     
  • Increase public access to energy usage data, empowering electricity customers to make smarter decisions about their energy use and save money through the use of new technologies and applications.
     
  • Support efforts by the U.S. military, UNC system and other state and local government agencies that seek flexibility to reduce electricity costs.

NCSEA will also monitor and serve as a resource on avoided cost methodology, net-metering, performance contracting, and other clean energy issues. For additional detail, please see the complete 2015 Legislative Agenda.

Clean energy has served all of us well. Over the 20-year period since their start in North Carolina, clean energy policies have helped to save ratepayers money, generate tax revenue for local governments, contribute to the state’s energy independence, attract private capital investments and create jobs throughout the state. That is an impressive record, but this successful past alone cannot guarantee an equally strong future for clean energy. To help secure further progress we must work to ensure a policy landscape that lets all clean energy stakeholders know that North Carolina is open for business.

The 2015 Legislative Agenda is our blueprint for continued success. We invite you to give it a look, and then to look for ways to engage with us and support us as we work to promote it. Make a donation. Begin or renew your membership. Follow us online.

We all have a stake in securing the continued growth of clean energy as a vital part of North Carolina’s future! Join us as we help to build that future together.
