First in Flight, First in Wind: A Community Forum on Offshore Wind in NC

North Carolina has the best offshore wind resources on the East Coast -- enough generation capacity to meet all of our State's electricity demands.

Speakers:
Brian O’Hara, President of the North Carolina Offshore Wind Coalition
Dr. John Bane, Distinguished Professor of Marine Sciences at UNC Chapel Hill
Marcilynn Burke, Acting Assistant Secretary at the Department of the Interior
Jon Williams, Assistant Secretary for Energy, NC Department of Commerce
Deborah Ross, NC House of Representatives, District 38

The speakers will discuss North Carolina's resource and what its development could mean for our energy, environmental, and economic future. The event is sponsored by The NC Sierra Club, The Capital Group Sierra Club, NC Interfaith Power and Light, & Meredith College

Please stay and join us for a reception with the speakers and refreshments after the presentations.

    Informative meeting, but I was left with the concern that offshore wind may never materialize without legislation to force utilities to purchase the wind power. Electricity from offshore wind will be more expensive than Desert Wind project and neither Progress or Duke would buy that electricity.

    The speakers were very informative. I now have a much better understanding of the challenges and opportunities for wind power in North Carolina.
