Renewable Energy

One thing that we do not lack here in North Carolina is space. Let’s make efficient use of it by backing more solar and wind farms. According to US Energy Information Administration, NC was the third largest producer of solar energy last year. We also opened the largest wind farm in the southeast. It will provide enough energy to power about 180,000 homes, or about the size of Cary and Wake Forest combined. Wind costs are almost half of other forms of electricity. That is more money in all our pockets. Not only will these industries produce good paying jobs, the cheaper electricity can attract other businesses to our state.
