Sign our petition: Tell Duke Energy to cut ties with ALEC
Reports surfaced recently of the American Legislative Exchange Council’s (ALEC) plans to push legislation that penalizes homeowners who install solar panels on their homes. This proposed new energy tax on solar homeowners is especially frustrating since the group claims to be an advocate of lower taxes and limited government.
The Guardian newspaper quotes John Eick, a legislative analyst for ALEC energy, who describes homeowners with solar panels as: “those direct generation customers are essentially free-riders on the system.”
Even more concerning is that Duke Energy was once a member of ALEC and won’t say now whether the company is currently a member of this anti-clean energy group. North Carolina’s main electric utility should have nothing to do with this backwards organization. We need your help to encourage Duke to cut all ties with ALEC. Sign our petition below and add your voice to this important issue.
