Float Beyond Coal!
On October 14th, people from across Western North Carolina will be coming to tell Duke Energy Progress that it’s time to move Beyond Coal. Supporters will be paddling out onto Lake Julian, holding banners, and creating a strong visual statement that we value our health and environment. Let’s move Asheville beyond coal to a clean energy future!
The Asheville Coal Plant is contributing to air pollution that threatens our health and our environment. Coal burning emits harmful air pollution that triggers asthma attacks, produces toxic coal ash which threatens local water supplies, and destroys mountain communities in neighboring states through mountaintop removal mining. We should not be sacrificing the health of our community, or our beautiful natural environment to stay stuck with this dirty, outdated energy source. We can change the way we get our energy. With clean energy solutions, like solar and wind power and strong efficiency, we can meet our energy needs. It is time to come together and move Western North Carolina to a clean energy future!
