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has the power to rapidly invest in clean energy solutions, but instead it continues business-as-usual by relying on an outdated, dirty coal plant in Asheville that is polluting our air and water.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.

Send a message to Duke Energy CEO Jim Rogers: Western North Carolina needs local, homegrown energy solutions that protect our air, water, and climate:
