Bad Bill of the Week: HB135 – “Eccentric Energy Efficiency Enforcement”


“Green” products are hip, and saving the environment is as supposedly as easy as turning your lights off at night. There is nothing wrong with individuals engaging in voluntary actions they perceive will help reduce our ecological footprint. Moreover, such actions can also lower utility bills, helping us save money in the long run.  House Bill 135 “Efficient and Affordable Energy Rates Bill” introduced by Representatives Keever (D- Buncombe), Parfitt (D-Cumberland), and Moore (D-Mecklenburg) seeks to force peoples’ choice by introducing a whole slew of mandates aimed at forcing energy efficiency, and uses strong arm tactics to ensure that citizens conform to their idea of energy policy. Senator Kinnaird (D- Orange, Person) introduced a corresponding bill in the Senate (SB 367).  NCCivitas.org
