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.
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
