NC legislature1.jpgIn 2007, the North Carolina government enacted the Renewable Portfolio Standard (RPS): a government mandate that forces the public to produce and buy their energy from unreliable, expensive energy sources cherry-picked by central planners.

Many of these energy sources, ranging from solar power to live-stock waste, can be 3 to 5 times more expensive than conventional sources such as coal and natural gas.  The effect is an aggregate price increase. Since implementation of the RPS, energy prices in North Carolina have increased annually at a 33 percent higher rate than years prior.

The people of North Carolina should be free to purchase their energy from affordable and reliable sources. Forcing them to do otherwise is a favor to big business and a slap in the face to fledgling industries.

Thankfully, the Affordable and Reliable Energy Act (H298) has been introduced. This would repeal much of the RPS’s devastating mandates.

Call the Congressmen on the House Utility Committee and demand they pass H298 to relieve North Carolina of costly energy mandates.

Helpful Points:

 

- The Renewable Portfolio Standard is a harmful mandate forcing North Carolinians to produce and buy their energy from unreliable, expensive energy sources.

 

- These energy sources can be upwards of 3 to 5 times more expensive than conventional sources such as coal and natural gas.

 

- The people of North Carolina should be free to purchase their energy from affordable and reliable sources.
