North Carolina Climate Solutions Coalition

Organizing & Advocating For 100% Clean, Renewable Energy & Green Jobs For North Carolina

The North Carolina Climate Solutions Coalition is a 501(c)(3) non profit that was created to advance resolutions across NC counties and municipalities to adopt 100% renewable energy by 2050. Following the Solutions Project we are encouraging our state of North Carolina, it’s leaders & regulators to adopt a resolution to demand clean energy across our state. Clean energy is cheaper to produce than coal or natural gas and has much less of an impact on the environment.

Why It Matters

Electric utilities have increasingly merged with natural gas companies and are building their own gas pipelines. These utilities earn more on pipelines (~14%) than on power plants and power lines (8-10%). Natural gas is a “super-greenhouse” gas, with a high leakage rate it’s generating 86 times more warming than CO2 over 20 years. The trend toward natural gas is driving climate change.
