A diverse fuel mix helps ensure reliability and affordability
North Carolina’s electric cooperatives work hard to provide you with safe, affordable, reliable and environmentally-responsible electricity. This fuel mix includes assets owned by the North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation (NCEMC) — the Raleigh-based power supplier serving most of the state’s electric cooperatives — as well as distributed generation resources and power purchased from other generators.
You’ll notice NCEMC’s generation relies on fewer fossil fuels than electric utilities nationwide. Like a good investment portfolio, a diverse fuel mix helps ensure reliability and affordability for consumers.
