Celebrating a Coal Ash Win in N.C.

In January, the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality reached a settlement with Duke Energy to excavate nearly 80 million tons of coal ash at six of the utility’s coal-fired power plants. The settlement is a result of a lawsuit filed by the nonprofit Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of Appalachian Voices and numerous other environmental organizations.

We are so proud to be part of this fight alongside ACT Against Coal Ash and all the many, many people who attended a hearing, made a phone call, gave testimony, sent an official comment on a rulemaking, turned out at a rally, printed flyers, or kept the home fires burning while others went to the frontlines. We salute you!
