Clean Energy Experts Support Solar-Plus-Storage

From our friends at NC WARN:

NC WARN proposes a sweeping shift in the profit-driven monopoly mindset that increasingly harms communities, drives up power bills, and makes the climate crisis worse. All Duke Energy’s residential, commercial and nonprofit customers can share in the costs and benefits of clean energy much like we currently pay for polluting power plants – through the electric rate system.

This proposal is a major shift from Duke Energy’s actions that are amplifying the climate crisis that’s harming so many in NC – disproportionately communities of color.

Read a summary of NC WARN’s Sharing Solar proposal here. 


  • There would be no up-front cost for customers to add solar plus battery storage. It would be funded through the Rate System – just as we now all pay for dirty power.
  • It can expand local solar-with-storage across NC quickly, inexpensively and equitably – with a priority on disadvantaged communities.
  • It’s the quickest, cheapest and most equitable way to phase out fossil fuels.
  • All homes, businesses, nonprofits benefit in many ways – even if they don’t have solar themselves.
  • Generating and storing solar where it is used helps during power outages – particularly important for emergency facilities.
  • It avoids the year-after-year rate hikes in Duke Energy’s high-risk plan to keep expanding fossil fuels and building experimental nuclear reactors.
  • It would be voluntary; some customers might choose to pay for solar-plus-storage themselves.
  • Sharing Solar helps rooftop solar companies that Duke has suppressed for years.
  • It creates new jobs in small towns and in cities … and would help Duke Energy too.
