Energy Independence

I believe that there can be no true independence or inter-dependence without a great energy policy.  I believe that every state should do all that is possible to become energy independent. 

Problem

NC does not have an organic supply of the currently most inexpensive forms of energy - oil and natural gas.  The  solar industry still has not produced cheaper electricity  than fossil fuel.  Despite their claims, our electricity costs continue to rise as a result of requirements that force electrical providers to purchase electricity from solar energy farms.

I support expanded investments into electrical power generation given the limitless potential of energy that can be harnessed off of our eastern shore:

- Hydro-electric generated from currents and waves

- Off-shore wind turbines
