Conservative group says N.C. support for clean energy is growing

By John Downey, Charlotte Business Journal.

The latest poll on N.C. voter preferences involving energy shows strong support for renewables, declining support for nuclear plant construction and strong opposition to fracking in the state.

The poll also shows strong support for restoring state tax credits for renewble energy and legislation allowing independent producers to sell power directly to customers. Voters overwhelmingly say they would support candidates who advocate these positions, according to the poll.
