EMCs Abandon Plans for Hydro Projects


Author(s):
Abstract:
North Carolina’s Electric Membership spent the past two years conducting feasibility studies of several highly-rated potential hydroelectric power sites across the state. The studies concluded that no hydro projects were worthy of development because the benefit-to-cost ratios were too small. Several issues involved high interest rates, technical difficulties and environmental concerns.
