Editor’s Notes: Businesses learn ‘green’ is in the eye of the beholder
“Green” projects have been all the rage these days, as interest in environmentally friendly construction and renewable-energy sources increases. But Charlotte-area businesses are learning that green is like beauty: It’s in the eye of the beholder. As evidenced by the reaction of environmentalists to projects being proposed for the Charlotte area, an idea pitched as being green won’t necessarily be seen that way by everybody. Take Duke Energy Corp. The Charlotte-based company wants to burn wood as a form of biomass to produce energy at a coal-fired generating station in Rowan County in North Carolina and another in Anderson County in South Carolina. But Duke must first get the North Carolina Utilities Commission to register the stations as renewable-energy facilities, a proposal that has generated critics.
