N.C. Energy Policy Council

N.C. Energy Policy Council focuses on gas-guzzlers, wind projects

November 11, 2010 - To slash carbon dioxide emissions and foster new green industries, North Carolina could require higher registration fees for gas-guzzling cars. Or it may mandate allowing utility customers to pay for energy-efficient equipment through their monthly power bills.

Those are two of the recommendations presented last week to the N.C. Energy Policy Council. Gov. Bev Perdue reconstituted the council last year, telling it to come up with energy proposals to present to N.C. lawmakers in January. She asked the group to concentrate on ideas that would spur green economic development in North Carolina. {read rest if subscribed to the Charlotte Biz Journal}
