Raleigh -- Press Release Oct 13, 2021 North Carolina Governor Cooper's Office
Today, Governor Roy Cooper signed the following bill into law:
House Bill 951: Energy Solutions for North Carolina.
Governor Cooper made the following statement on HB 951:
"Today, North Carolina moves strongly into a reliable and affordable clean energy future. This new bipartisan law requires the North Carolina Utilities Commission to take steps needed to get North Carolina a 70% reduction in carbon emission by the year 2030 and to carbon neutrality by 2050," said Governor Cooper. "Making transformative change is often controversial and never easy, especially when there are different points of view on big, complex issues. But coming to the table to find common ground is how government should work."
