Financing News

North Carolina has been an early leader in the clean energy transition, but the recent energy legislation, House Bill 951, does not align with Governor Roy Cooper’s set goals to address climate change. HB 951 leans on building new natural gas plants to replace retiring coal facilities, instead of focusing on the necessary renewable energy investments. Read our full thoughts.

Carbon capture technologies have been around for decades – many have touted them as a key solution in reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, and consequently, mitigating climate change. However, there is as much skepticism as there is interest in carbon capture. Learn more about carbon capture and Leyline’s thoughts on investments in these hotly contested energy projects.
