Initial DOE SEP funding
Leveraged SEP funds to develop a Clean Energy Plan (CEP), which outlines 38 recommendations and 85 actions in key strategic areas
In private leveraged funds
In North Carolina, the State Energy Office leveraged SEP funds to develop a Clean Energy Plan (CEP) which will transition the state’s electricity system to the 21st century. The CEP was developed for use as a statewide roadmap to encourage the use of clean energy resources and technologies and to foster the development of a modern and resilient electricity system. The CEP outlines 38 recommendations and 85 actions in key strategic areas, including: develop carbon reduction policy designs for accelerated retirement of uneconomic coal assets and other market-based and clean energy policy options; (2) develop and implement policies and tools such as performance-based mechanisms, multi-year rate planning, and revenue decoupling, that better align utility incentives with public interest, grid needs and state policy; and (3) modernize the grid to support clean energy resource adoption, resilience and other public interest outcomes. The NC CEP will serve as a statewide roadmap for the legislature, utilities commission, Governor’s Office, state agencies, investor-owned utilities, rural electric cooperatives/public utilities, local government, academia, businesses, and the general public.
