Coal, Nukes and Fracking? Renewables and Energy-Saving? You Can Help Decide
On Monday, February 11 in Raleigh, there will be a public hearing giving us the opportunity to speak out about the dirty and costly business plans of Duke Energy and Progress Energy.

A Responsible Energy Future for North Carolina.
