Abstract:
Former Duke University economics professor John Blackburn recently completed a study showing that wind and solar power combined could someday supply more than three-fourths of North Carolina’s electric power. Together, solar and wind power are highly reliable and inexpensive according to Blackburn. The utility companies disagree. The details Blackburn’s study and the position of the utility companies are explored.
