A what we want to do is see if thais the right decision looking Back eight years later Quot my Hager a former Duke Energy Plant Engineer. The Standard has created a ready made Market for renewable but critics say it s time for solar to Rise or fall on its own. The solar Industry says ifs not right now to change the mandate saying Industry investors will go elsewhere if they re unsure utilities will need More alternative Power. Capping the Standard would say that a changes can be made abruptly and that investments that those industries have made Here in North Carolina Are at risk a Saki John Morrison chief operating officer with eco lexus which builds and installs solar systems. Industry advocates attribute the state s solar policies for making North Carolina first in the South and fourth nationwide in completed solar investment with 450 companies supporting More than 4,000jobs, according to a report from a Center at Duke University. Joel Olsen founder of 02energies in Cornelius has developed 1.4 solar projects across North Carolina. He expects 300winkers on a pending 28-megawatt project in Rural Montgomery county. The Industry Quot can continue to grow if we let everything run its course Quot Olsen said. Conservative groups have studies that contend the portfolio Standard has led to fewer Overall jobs being created in the state. Residential electric customers currently Are basically paying an amount equal to pocket change in their monthly Bills to help utilities meet the Standard. Businesses and manufacturing plants pay More and every Little bit gets passed on to Consumers Hager said. An Rte International study however calculated the portfolio Standard is resulting in Overall savings on customers Bills in cheaper Power solar also was discussed during last weeks debate on the House budget which extended a credit for investing in renewable Energy property set to expire at the end of 2015 for another two years.

Duke Energy took nearly half the credits in 2014, a report said. ? the Rte study prepared j for the North Carolina sus taxable Energy association found renewable Energy projects has generated 54 a percent More government tax revenues than the credit itself had paid out. Hager said be s not pushing for changes on behalf for his former employer saying he just wants Low Cost electricity for constituents and Industry. Duke Energy has t spoken out for or against Many provisions being debated except for the study requirement which it supports to examine Many renewable Energy issues company spokesman Randy wireless said.
