Duke Energy Bails Out of Coal Industry Group

Last time the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity (ACCCE) was in the news it was for a scandal involving forged “constituent” letters urging members of Congress to vote against the clean energy bill.

Today, ACCCE got more bad news (which is good news for the rest of us): Duke Energy is dropping out. Check out some of the articles about the politics behind their decision:

Duke has already severed ties with another of its former coalitions — the National Association of Manufacturers.

Duke is a member of USCAP, which is fighting for passage of clean energy legislation and a cap on carbon pollution. As a fellow member of USCAP, we here at EDF are happy to see Duke chose to stick with the right side in this debate.
