Airship Protests Duke Energy at Cliffside Plant

Photo | 7 September, 2012

The Greenpeace thermal airship A.E. Bates flies over the Cliffside coal fired power plant in Mooresboro. The flight was to call attention to Duke Energy's plans to continue using coal, nuclear and other forms of dangerous energy at great public cost. Banners on the airship read "Duke: Don't Raise Rates for Dirty Energy" and "Cleaner is Cheaper." To coincide with the statewide airship tour, Greenpeace released 'Charting the Correction Course: A Clean Energy Pathway for Duke Energy.' The report details how the newly merged Duke Energy can invest in wind, solar and energy efficiency while saving themselves and North Carolina rate payers billions of dollars over 20 years.08/01/2012
