Who We Are

The Alliance of Carolinians Together Against Coal Ash is a powerful coalition of North Carolinians impacted by Duke Energy’s coal ash.

We formed in July 2015 in response to the tragic coal ash situation that plagues our state.

ACT Against Coal Ash includes representatives from communities next to the massive coal ash pits at the following Duke Energy power plants:

  • Belews Creek (Walnut Cove, Stokes County)
  • G.G. Allen (Belmont, Gaston County)
  • H.F. Lee (Goldsboro, Wayne County)
  • Asheville (Arden, Buncombe County)
  • Buck (Salisbury, Rowan County)
  • Cliffside (Cleveland & Rutherford Counties)

We also include representatives from communities next to the coal ash landfills that will contain Duke Energy’s coal ash, but are owned and operated by Green Meadow LLC:

  • Moncure, Chatham County
  • Sanford, Lee County

We believe that as neighbors of Duke’s coal ash, we best understand the dangers to health, property, and the environment that the toxic waste poses and that we should be consulted during every step of the coal ash cleanup process in North Carolina.
