The policy should be one which best ensures public health and safety, protects the environment of North Carolina and surrounding states, considers the regulatory implications of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency establishment of a social cost of carbon, maximizes North Carolina’s economy, promotes energy diversity through the effective management and use of all energy resources, including coal, hydroelectric, natural gas, and nuclear energy; renewable energy such as biomass, solar, and wind; and alternative energy sources. The policy should also establish adequate energy infrastructure, effectively utilize domestic energy resources, promote energy efficiency, and minimize impacts from energy shortages/curtailments
