Friday, January 24th, 2014

WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A Wilmington man called WPD to tell them he scared off a would-be intruder. It all happened at 715 Mercer Avenue around 11:30 a.m. Thursday.

The man told police he heard someone breaking into his home, so he yelled to scare the person off. By the time the resident got to the door he saw a black man in a red jacket running away. It appeared that he used a shovel to try to pry the window open.

But the suspect left his bike behind. Now officers have the bike and are processing it and its tracks in hopes of finding leads

Duke Energy wants to pay less for NC rooftop solar

Friday, January 24th, 2014

RALEIGH, NC (AP) — The largest electric company in the US wants to change a rule designed to spur rooftop solar energy production and pay North Carolina shops and homeowners less to generate power.

Duke Energy vice president Rob Caldwell said Thursday the company wants state utilities regulators to reduce the price the Charlotte-based company pays for rooftop solar power.

The current policy for what’s called “net metering” allows owners of rooftop solar systems to use electricity they generate from the sun and sell any surplus to Duke Energy at 11 cents per kilowatt hour. That’s the same price households pay for electricity but more than the 5 cents to 7 cents Caldwell said it costs Duke to generate power using industrial-scale solar farms and other methods.
