Who We Are / Our Mission

The Energy Justice NC: Ending the Duke Monopoly coalition is a collaboration of 14 local, state and national nonprofit organizations working to bring the people of North Carolina a choice of energy providers. We seek to change how the system of electricity generation and sales in our state is structured by ending the monopoly control of electric utilities and bringing a competitive market to drive innovation and lower costs to consumers.

This coalition represents a diverse range of organizations representing social justice, youth, the environment and faith, as well as local community groups and businesses, who recognize the problems of monopoly control, serial rate hikes, and the threat of worsening storms and flooding which will threaten the current grid system.

Now is the time for this state to pull together and make wise, democratically-based decisions about our energy future – and to break free from the profit-driven interests of corporate monopolies.

Now is the time for Energy Justice, North Carolina.
