The “Carolina Community Energy Partnerships” non-profit project is the topic of discussion with Dave Hollister, co-owner of Sundance Power Systems, looking at the need to transform the way we produce and distribute energy across the region. What is net metering and why is it crucial to protect? What are the options for the utilities and how can they support a sustainable business model for them? A five year campaign to increase clean energy by 20%, reduce demand by 20% through energy efficiency and monitor the reductions in coal being burned at the Lake Julian Coal Fired plant is the goal of “20% by 2020″. Original Air Date 2-9-14.
I’d like to invite you listen to a very special program with Dave Hollister, Sundance Power Systems, on the issues of clean energy transitions and the “Carolina Community Energy Partnerships”, a non-profit project of the American Forest Alliance and Climate Ground Zero.
“20% by 2020”
The goal of the “Carolina Community Energy Partnerships” is to increase clean energy by 20% and increase energy efficiency by 20% between now and 2020. The total of both has the potential to reduce the amount of coal burned at the Duke Energy Lake Julian coal fired power plant by nearly 40%. This regional campaign will include free public educational programs, a website to offer resources and information about clean energy and energy efficiency options, as well as metrics on the impacts of the project over the next five years.
It’s time we worked in partnership for a clean energy future. Not only for the critical environmental reasons, but also the sustainable economic benefits that clean energy offers. With clean energy and energy efficiency investments, we have the opportunity to create good jobs, protect the environment and shift to a more truly sustainable economic model.
The “Carolina Community Energy Partnerships” needs your support to develop our resources website, develop new interactive programs and expand community educational opportunities.
The “Carolina Community Energy Partnerships” effort is a project of the American Forest Alliance. Your tax deductible contributions will help to “kick start” our regional project!
