Energy Innovation Task Force Announces Cancellation of Duke’s Peaker Plant, Honors Community Partners

The Energy Innovation Task Force (EITF) is excited to announce that through community collaboration, the gas-fired peaker plant, originally planned for 2023, has been pushed out beyond 2032. “Delaying the need for any additional natural gas-fired generation in Buncombe County beyond 2032 is a big deal. The facility would have cost residential and business ratepayers more than $100 million paid for through higher electricity bills,” notes EITF member and Chair of the Buncombe County Board of Commissioners Brownie Newman. The peaker plant would have been used to ensure electricity production during peak demand times such as the coldest winter days.  Click here to read more

I INVITED FIVE WISE WOMEN. HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED.

I’m not a person prone to inviting friends to spontaneous dinners at my house. I’d like to be more of a “sure, come on over” kind of person, but in general, I’m not.  Because… any dinner, no matter how simple, seems to require some sort of more-special-than-usual food prep, cleaning the house, and straightening things up to look casually wonderful, as if my house looks that way all the time.
