Bill To Repeal NC Renewables Program Makes A Slow Comeback

  The North Carolina Renewables Program, instated in 2007, requires utility companies to produce a percentage of sales from efficiency efforts or renewable sources. The program has since pushed North Carolina up in solar farm research and also created jobs during a recession. Efforts to repeal the program have recently been introduced to the House and Senate, claiming that the programs will have a negative impact on the economy. John Murawski, a reporter for the News and Observer, will join host Frank Stasio to discuss the progress of the bills to repeal the NC Renewables Program.

John Murawski's articles on the NC Renewables Program can be found below:

Longtime NPR correspondent Frank Stasio was named permanent host of The State of Things in June 2006. A native of Buffalo, Frank has been in radio since the age of 19. He began his public radio career at WOI in Ames, Iowa, where he was a magazine show anchor and the station's News Director.
