Let them Know YOU Oppose Unfair Rate Hikes in NC!
Duke Energy and Progress Energy are working the halls of the NC General Assembly this very minute to build support for a new bill that would unfairly place the financial burden of building new nuclear reactors on us, the customers. This rate hike would be placed into effect before the new reactors ever went online without guarantee that they ever would, and without adequate oversight and review from the North Carolina Utilities Commission. We need you to email your legislators in the next day or two. Please help spread the word – forward this email!
Duke and Progress want YOU – their customers – to pay in advance for construction of financially risky new nuclear plants – at $10 billion per reactor – with automatic annual rate hikes that could significantly increase power bills. They will not be able to build new nuclear reactors in North Carolina unless they get this cost scheme approved. We understand that by last week, the utilities had lined up enough votes to ram through this Annual Rate Hike Bill. The nuclear crisis in Japan only temporarily stopped them.
Once introduced, this bill could move very quickly, as legislative supporters will likely minimize debate. SOPLEASE, SEND YOUR EMAIL TODAY!
