This event is hosted by the John Locke Foundation, and features Center of the American Experiment Policy Fellow Isaac Orr.

Gov. Roy Cooper’s Clean Energy Plan calls for a 70% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions from electricity by 2030 and carbon neutrality by 2050. Estimates from Duke Energy for implementing the plan, along with future grid modeling, show Cooper’s plan is expensive, wasteful, and risky. In this conversation, we’ll compare and contrast Cooper’s plan with the findings of a Locke-commissioned study. Our experts will illustrate the superiority of nuclear and natural gas when it comes to achieving carbon emission reduction goals for the state and ensuring affordability, efficiency, reliability, and preservation of the environment.
