Duke Energy is asking the NC Utilities Commission to charge ratepayers nearly 2 billion dollars to complete the coal burning Cliffside project. The first of several rate increase proposals range from 18% to 20% of current charges. Ulla Reeves, Regional Program Director for the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy; Julie Mayfield, Executive Director of the WNC Alliance; Dr. Richard Fireman Public Policy Coordinator for InterFaith Power & Light and Mike Cherin, organizer for the Energy Action Coalition join host Ned Ryan Doyle for a panel discussion of why the Cliffside coal burning project is not needed and is a poor investment for ratepayers, citizens and the environment.
