A few state senators are trying again to block clean wind energy development on nearly our entire coast. It’s time to tell our legislators to stop this nonsense.
Low-wealth coastal counties are anxious to take advantage of wind energy to boost their local economies. North Carolina already has tough standards in place to control environmental and neighbor impacts, and to prevent any conflicts with military bases or training. Senate Bill 377, sponsored by Senate Majority Leader Harry Brown, would still block all commercial wind energy development across all but three of our coastal counties, effectively extending his blanket moratorium which expired at the end of 2018.
Brown receives extensive campaign support from anti-wind energy, pro-fossil fuel sources.
Make your voice heard for clean wind energy in North Carolina now. Tell your legislators to oppose Senate Bill 377 by contacting the senators on the committee which could soon hear this bill.
