This is great news. Duke Energy wants climate change legislation to pass, presumably because by supporting it, they can have a hand in shaping the final bill. They're not really fully jumping into the greener camp -- they still think coal must be a part of our nation's energy mix and that CO2 capture and storage is something we should
waste spend money on -- but leaving the ACCCE is a good step in the right direction for them and for the planet. Kudos Duke Energy.
