NCSEA advocates for and advances public policy, regulation, and market solutions that increase clean energy deployment and the economy. Our advocacy focuses on educating decision-makers to develop smart public policy, considering the interest of all stakeholders’ energy needs. Our thought leadership and creation of a space for productive stakeholder discussion shapes the future of clean energy in North Carolina. We aim to create an energy vision for the state that enhances the consumer experience and allows for competition of all stakeholders.
