NC lawmakers likely to set aside utility market competition debate after big energy reform law

A key player on energy issues in the N.C. House doubts the legislature will take up calls by consumer, business and clean energy groups to consider increased power market competition in the short session after the recent passage of House Bill 951.

Rep. John Szoka (R-Cumberland) told the 2021 Legislative Recap online conference that “a bill of this magnitude needs to settle in” for a couple of years before the N.C. General Assembly would be willing to take another look at major utility regulation.
