The latest in a string of monster storms of recent years, Hurricane Florence punctuates the fact that the cost of climate pollution is accelerating.

"By contrast, Duke Energy’s new 15-year plan dismisses battery storage while projecting construction of 24 large gas-fired plants in the Carolinas. As other utilities and states are moving to go all-renewable, Duke plans to be only 7% renewable by 2033 – despite all the slick advertising."

Which "DUKE" Energy are you talking about? In Nevada, Nevada Energy a "Duke" affiliate was trying to cement their "regulated monopoly" with an initiative to change the Nevada Constitution to protect their interests. It didn't work, the voting public isn't THAT stupid and voted it down. Now NV Energy is on track to install six solar PV or wind energy farms, three with energy storage. Duke is talking about more fracking, natural gas deliveries and Peaker plants in the Carolinas. Where or where are your Legislators on this point? Where does the Legislators get their money to run a campaign? In California, Duke bought a couple of solar PV farms to supplement their generation portfolio in the California market.
