N.C. ‘clean energy’ firms jump by 700 to 1,800 in less than year

Passage of the Renewable Energy & Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard in 2007 by the N.C. General Assembly and incentives from the federal government are helping create a growing “clean industry” in the state, according to the N.C. Sustainable Energy Association.

North Carolina is now home to 1,792 companies focused on renewable energy, and the state is the site for 1,829 renewable energy systems, according to a new report from the association.

The number of companies jumped from 1,100 last fall to nearly 1,800, based on data gathered by the group as of March. And these numbers could be low, according to the report’s authors.
