Nuclear Matters is disappointed in the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) decision on December 19 to make it more difficult and expensive for states in the PJM Interconnection market to pursue policies that support zero-carbon energy sources like nuclear, wind, solar and other renewables.

Nuclear Matters applauds the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and Governor Roy Cooper on their inclusion of carbon-free nuclear energy in the state’s Clean Energy Plan, which outlines a roadmap to a clean energy system by 2030.

North Carolina has a lot to be proud of: The Blue Ridge Parkway, America’s finest barbecue, craft breweries galore, and now, the chance to be carbon neutral. As a Duke Energy engineer and president of the non-profit North American Young Generation in Nuclear (NAYGN), an organization dedicated to developing leaders to energize the future of nuclear energy, my expectations are high for North Carolina’s energy future.
