A growing group of lawmakers in the General Assembly actively support legislation that forces North Carolina taxpayers to subsidize renewable energy and to pay higher electric bills.
Major solar corporations and radical environmental money, known collectively as Big Solar, have hired Republican political consultants and lobbyists in North Carolina to push the narrative to their clients – GOP legislators.
Much of the funding for the North Carolina Big Solar operation comes from extreme environmental groups in San Francisco. That’s likely why NC solar lobbyist are hiding their money trail.
Part of Big Solar’s North Carolina scheme is to be a source of money to 2016 candidates in order to exert influence in the General Assembly today and for years to come.
A recent study estimated that North Carolina residents will pay on average a total of $149 million more per year in utility bills, thanks in part to Big Solar’s efforts.
