Tell Duke Energy to Move Beyond Coal in Asheville
Since merging with
Progress Energy last year, Duke Energy has become the largest
energy utility in the country. It has the power to rapidly invest in
clean energy solutions, but instead it continues business-as-usual by
relying on an outdated, dirty coal plant in Asheville that is polluting our air and water.
Historic hot temperatures, droughts,
superstorms and raging wild fires in 2012 leave no doubt that climate
disruption is here. The coal plant in
Asheville is the largest single contributor to climate disruption in Western
North Carolina, releasing carbon dioxide into the air every year equivalent to
500,000 cars on the road.
