North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed this North Carolina Clean Energy Week.

Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed this week North Carolina Clean Energy Week to highlight the work the state is doing to advance clean energy, and leading the way in creating clean energy jobs to combat climate change.

Cooper said several recent executive orders support the state climate goals, include one centering environmental justice and another focused on emissions reduction. A third established offshore wind development goals.

The NC Department of Transportation, he added, is also developing its Clean Transportation Plan.

In addition, a $23.7 million American Rescue Plan Good Jobs Challenge grant to NC A&T will create a clean energy workforce training program at the university.

Annette is originally a Midwest gal, born and raised in Michigan, but with career stops in many surrounding states, the Pacific Northwest, and various parts of the southeast. She has been involved in the media industry in eastern North Carolina for more than three years. An award-winning journalist and mother of four, Annette moved to ENC to be closer to family – in particular, her two young grandchildren. It’s possible that a -27 day with a -68 windchill in Minnesota may have also played a role in that decision. In her spare time, Annette does a lot of toddler and baby cuddling, reading, designing costumes for children’s theater and producing the coolest Halloween costumes anyone has ever seen. She has also worked as a diversity and inclusion facilitator serving school districts and large corporations. It’s the people that make this beautiful area special, and she wants to share those stories that touch the hearts of others.
