It’s true, there ain’t no need for the ACP!
NC can get the natural gas it needs through the existing Transco Pipeline.
Why build the ACP?
The corporate owners of the ACP (Duke Energy and Dominion) will get up to a 14% profit on this over 5.1 BILLION dollar project.
Who’s paying for the ACP?
We are. Yep. Our Duke Energy electric bills will be raised to pay for the pipeline, on top of other increases. Many in Robeson County already can’t afford their electric bills, so why build the pipeline?
The corporate owners of pipelines see these projects as guaranteed profit for years to come.
It’s all about $$$.
