North Carolina has been a leader in clean energy ever since we passed a Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (REPS) in 2007. The REPS has spurred investments in clean energy projects that have led to 21,000 new jobs, $1.7 billion in revenue, and helped protect North Carolina's environment.
Now, the North Carolina General Assembly wants to put an end to clean energy. House Bill 298, misnamed the Affordable and Reliable Energy Act, would dismantle REPS, the standard that has made our state a national leader in renewable energy development. If it passes, H298 would destroy the state's reputation for clean energy, stifle job creation, and scare off investment.
Sign our petition to defeat this anti-environmental bill and protect clean energy in North Carolina now!
To: The NC State Senate The NC State House
As your constituent, I urge you to protect clean energy in North Carolina by rejecting House Bill 298.
Renewable energy projects have brought $1.7 billion in revenue to the state of North Carolina since we passed the REPS in 2007. Now, North Carolina should keep moving towards an even cleaner energy future, not rolling back the progress we’ve made and returning to dirty oil and gas. If H298 passes, it will destroy our state's reputation for clean energy, stifle job creation, and scare off investment.

Don't let North Carolina's families, our environment, and future generations down. Protect clean energy in North Carolina by voting against H298.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
