Renewable Energy Options for North Carolina

Record #:
The North Carolina Utilities Commission requested a major study of the potential benefits of developing renewable energy resources and the possible costs to consumers. Boston-based La Capra Associates, a consulting firm which has advised other states on energy alternatives, conducted the study. The study identified the following renewable resources available in North Carolina: biomass, wind, wood waste, agriculture crop waste, hydropower, and landfill gas. While the list is broad, practical application of these resources in the state is limited.
