Energy Prices on the Rise in the Southeast

ACCE Webmaster on Friday, August 29, 2008 at 10:07:09 pm

According to Raleigh, NC based utility Progress Energy, electricity rates are set to rise substantially  in 2009.  An article in today's News and Observer indicates that rates for Progress customers in Florida will go up by 31% while North Carolina customers will see an increase of 16%.  The company attributes increases to higher fuel cost, investment in nuclear, and clean-air technology updates at existing coal plants.

In ACCE surveys, energy consistently ranks at the top on a list priority policy issues.  If you are concerned about the impact that  supply and price of energy will have on your local economy, join us for ACCE's upcoming Energy Issue Jam on September 25.  Issue Jams are an interactive web and phone based teleseminar.  Speaker and registration details about the Energy Issue Jam will be available soon.
