SACE Schlissel NCUC IRP Testimony

Guest Blog | March 18, 2010 | Legal Documents

David Schlissel, President of Schlissel Technical Consulting, Inc. and expert on electric utility engineering and economics, testified before the North Carolina Utilities Commission on March 16, 2010 on behalf of Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, Southern Environmental Law Center, Environmental Defense Fund and Sierra Club. Schlissel’s testimony highlights grave concerns about the utility’s lack of planning around future federal carbon dioxide, coal ash, and ozone and particle pollution regulations, which are all imminent. Neither Duke nor Progress adequately factored into their IRP studies the risk to customers of operating coal-fired power plants in the face of new or more stringent regulations.NC_IRP2009_SchlisselTestimony_Coal.pdf
